CCTV footage of hideous attack

I'm not sure how I feel.  I just watched the internet streamed video of the horrific attack on a young kid at Corrimal railway station last July.  The boy was chased along the station platform in Corrimal in Woolongong and set upon by a group of youths.  Thugs.  Kicked and beaten, he was left for dead as the cowardly attackers pulled their baseball caps down and their respective hoodies up to conceal their identities from the overhead CCTV cameras.
Just watching the attack somehow made me feel guilty and part of it.  Why would I want to watch something like that?  Why did the courts agree to it being posted on the internet?  Why would anyone do that to another human being, another defenseless, completely outnumbered human being?  Why did the culprits only get the combined sentences of 12 months and 2 others receiving suspended jail sentences?  Why, why, why?
