Cold blooded mass murderer would be our impression of him (as Humans) for sure, but what of the people of Asgard. Loki described people as Ants, so why should he be concerned with crushing a few Ants, and suppose that feeling is mirrored throughout Asgard that people are below them (with the exception of Thor). We as a society kill animals all the time and most would not consider themselves to be murderer's. Also, you must consider this. Loki, only really seeks approval and redemption from Odin, and most parents will forgive their kids before somebody else would.
Just food for thought.
