I can't believe this horrific crimes were done in our name.

2. Thom is saying that they are frightened little men.

I say they are frightened little men, and they are psychotic criminals who indulge in great glee in tormenting, torturing and harming others. They did this intentionally out of sick, bizarre pleasure, not from simple fear.
