Do you take every word so literally?
Morrison's a professional writer. If he uses a word or constructs a sentence I assume he knows what it meant and that he meant what he said.

Anyway if we want to be so anal and literal - he beats up a junkie in a story with Jason Todd, he asks the guy if he's a pusher after kicking in his door and then punches him so hard that he knocks him out (the guy offers no resistance or threat to Batman). It's part of a story-line where Pushers are selling drugs at Todd's school.
So, in other words, the only "junkie" he ever beat up was a drug dealer, selling to kids? If so, he wasn't beaten up for being a junkie or being poor. He was, as is typical of Batman, beating up a criminal for being a criminal.
