「人でなし」ってなんでしょうか。

 

Recently I've watched a very very interesting drama called "Kurosagi (クロサギ)". I think many people know about this drama!
In one of the episodes, Horikita Maki used a word 「~この人でなし」which was translated as "good-for-nothing person". My question is, is it really that, or does this phrase have a different meaning? Is it a very rude/impolite phrase?
(*If possible, can you please describe another situation in a conversational style when this phrase can be naturally used?)

Here is the clip of the drama where she used this phrase:

    It means a man who doesn't have human mind.
    So hitodenashi is just same as a devil or a beast.
    I hope this helps you.
