Schadenfreude

Over Eid in Al Ain, a Toyota Landcruiser that was parked on the sidewalk was nearly swallowed by a sinkhole.

A person who saw this story and felt that it was somehow fitting that someone who was parked illegally had this happen to them would be experiencing schadenfreude. Many people think that if you experience schadenfreude, then you should feel shame for feeling that way.

I don't think that there is a word to describe the feeling that it is unfortunate that this happened to one such person and not to all sidewalk parkers.
