That or anything the Joker said or claimed was dismissed as being the ramblings of a lunatic.
That possibility occurred to me as well, and I dismissed it as inconsistent with character and story. Considering how manipulative and successful he the Joker is at everything else, itís inconceivable that he couldnít find a way to puncture the lie if he wanted to.
You must be joking. Nolan has the papers reporting on Bruce's very public trip to China, and - boom! Batman appears in China. And yet, eight years later, people still haven't put the pieces together.

But the citizens of Gotham believing the police instead of Joker is unbelievable? When Joker has to prove a negative?

Riiiiigggghht.

He would have to be silenced, but tossing him in Arkham wouldnít do the trick. Key or no key, the Joker will eventually escape Arkham, or he isnít the Joker.
You're assuming some hot-blooded cop didn't murder him en route to wherever after the police got to him, with no textual evidence to back you up.



Batman taking the rap was a silly plot point written to provide a "wow, things sure look bad for Bats now!" cliffhanger, plain and simple.
