He doesn't hate crime, he hates murder and the murderers, it doesn't matter which are their motives. He has a trauma and he has to calm it, he doesn't wanna change anything or avoid the villains continue killing, in fact it's better for him they continue killing (perhaps that's the message the Joker wanted to tell him in the Death of the family
's arc, but as it's a commercial rubbish written with the ass it ends completely diluted).
