A child getting killed itself isn't interesting.
I find serial killers and the gruesome details around what happened interesting. But it's not because I'm trivializing what happened or because I think it's cool; it's because the need to find out how and why someone could do that is interesting. I'm drawn to it because it's not something I could even fathom and therefore I want to know more.
The motive and circumstances behind the crime are interesting. I can be emotionally appalled and fascinated by something at the same time without making light of the situation. I would hope that the people who work with disturbed individuals or who help stop pediphilia don't do so because they like it; they are drawn to it, most likely, by the need to find out how to stop it.
Having one emotion exist at one time isn't a measure of ones humanity.
