Before Bafman it was gangsters and corruption but after Batman it changed to supervillains like Bane, Joker, Mr Freeze, etc. Gotham was better before...
Has Batman made crime worse?
Joker was a well known criminal. With or without Batman, his plan was to send a message. Batman just gave him an opportunity to work with other crime bosses. Bane was a well-known mercenary who didn't even live in the United States. He targeted Gotham because that was Ra's Al Ghul's plan. If not for Batman, Joker could have killed thousands, or even millions before they stopped him. Ra's' plan would probably have succeeded in the first movie.
Well, the situation in Gotham was never good to begin with...AND judging by 'Batman: Year One', 'The Man Who Laughs' and 'The Long Halloween', crime has always been pretty dreadful. I guess crime just evolved with the times: from pickpockets, to gangsters, to mob families, to super-criminals...
