He slowed down and said the kid's in for a show tonight, implying he knows Batman has it taken care of (much like in the book). And it would have been fine had they addressed that in the film regarding the police's perception, but they never do. The guy's just like "Hey look, it's Batman. Yay."
Yes, Blake does question Batman's supposed "murders", but they never establish there are conspiracy theories going around or anything like that. It comes off entirely as everyone buying into the lie except
for the great golden boy John Blake who is so wise and so destined for greatness.
