I hadn't thought about the spectators at Gordon's trial, but you bring up a good point, that would have made the scene more powerful. On that note, I'm disappointed the Dent cover up isn't brought up again after Blake reprimands Gordon for it. I know that that conversation is one of the things that leads to Blake abandoning the shackles of the rules, but I wanted to see more of a resolution with Gordon's arc about the cover up.
It's not like they don't tackle these things, but after TDK, I expected at least half of that in TDKR. Gordon does have to answer to the people for his involvement in the lie, but it's dealt with way too fast. When he was arrested by Barsad on the streets, I remember thinking "Oh no, there is no more running away from it now."
