My first reaction was that the poem wasn't about the man at all but about
the maid. The spirit was just in that he is releasing her from her
oppresser but she does not see it that way because maybe she is suffering
something like a mild form of "stockholm syndrome". Remember Patty Hearst
or Elizabeth Smart. Its something the mind does to protect itself when they
spend alot of time with thier capture they begin to relate to, side with
and even morn the loss of thier capture. When Crane wrote this it hadn't
been diagnosed, maybe he should have been a shrink instead of a poet?

The point of this poem is simple: No matter how evil a person may be,
he/she has, in the deepest part of themselves, something loveable, and
genuinely worthy of love. The spirit denies that. "evil is evil"
but the truth is that everyone has good in them and almost everyone has, in
their lives, someone who can see that Good, and mourn it...
Think of someone you detest, and ask yourself, honestly, if perhaps they
have some good in them...

There is more to a meaningful life than 'justice'. Whatever that is, that
thing beyond our judgements of right and wrong, that is real justice.
Besides, IF anyone (sane), even one, could weep for someone...
