One thing that came to my mind as I watched this video is why this makes such a newsworthy story. Is forgiveness so uncommon that when it does happen, it turns into a featured news story?

What good would it have done for them not to forgive? I suppose that they could have profited from harsher legal action.
One thing that is sure is that the effect of those touched by the attitude of charity and forgiveness demonstrated by the Toones has a more far reaching impact for good than if this were to have been another account of tragic sorrow lost in the sea of other unforgiving grudge holders too commonly found elsewhere.
