In The Dark Knight, when The Joker plans to kill the Mayor at a public gathering. His attempt to shoot the Mayor is foiled by Gordon. After this we see Joker's face in frustration. This is the only time we see Joker without his make up, but the scars on his face are clearly visible.

Why is it that no one noticed this highly unusual man dressed up in a police uniform at this function?

How is it even possible to answer this? –  DisgruntledGoat Apr 24 '13 at 15:06

@DisgruntledGoat I don't see any reason why it could be impossible to give any theories on this. –  Ankit Apr 24 '13 at 16:59

Either it was explained in the film (in which case you wouldn't be asking the question) or it wasn't explained, in which case it's a plot hole and the question is not constructive. That's how I see it anyway. There is a thing called suspension of disbelief where you just go along with it and assume nobody noticed the Joker. –  DisgruntledGoat Apr 24 '13 at 19:38

To give a possible explanation, he did tie up the entire gun squad in an apartment he rented, replacing that entire front line with Arkham inmates. With the regular police paying attention to the procession and ones not in the parade keeping a look out for snipers, the distraction was there to keep him hidden in plain sight. –  TylerShads Apr 25 '13 at 12:16
    
That's a really plausible theory. I can't understand why my question is closed. –  Ankit Apr 25 '13 at 13:11
