Mmm, a guy whose hobby is dressing like a bat to catch criminals and you think he doesn't hate them? He makes it for vengeance and justice but he doesn't hate them? Really?
First the vengeance and the justice have nothing to see each other. Then, if Bruce Wayne wanted justice he would be interested for the fate of the criminals he catches, and perhaps he would finish like Two Face. If he wanted vengeance he would kill the criminals and he would be like Azrael or Red Hood. He doesn't do one thing nor the other, so he isn't looking for vengeance or justice. In my opinion he just wants to relieve the anxiety for their parents's murder by attacking criminals, nothing more, so he is another madman, a sanctimonious one, but madman anyway.
