What makes this more bizzare (though, as you intimated, less bad morally) is the utter pointlessness.
The things you're talking about where abuses that happened in the course of governing / conducting wars / consolidating power. There's some purposeful component to the intial actions (which then obviously morph into something horrible).
This is just someone being dumb solely to amuse himself.
