A 3- or 4-year-old girl gets hit by a car and has to be taken to a hospital.
That's terrible, and your heart goes out to her and her family. (Thankfully, the girl's injuries turned out to be non-life-threatening.)
When the driver who struck the girl stops to check on her, a group of men (part of a crowd of thousands that had gathered to celebrate the anniversary of news of the Emancipation Proclamation reaching Galveston) attacks and ends up beating the passenger of the car to death.
That's humanity at its finest, and all the heroes involved should be awfully proud of themselves.
