How do I stop feeling bad for someone that doesn't deserve it?

I'm truly fighting the emotional eating demons this weekend and could use some suggestions. My daughter is in the process of divorcing her husband. He pushed her around a little, kept her from her friends and family, spent all their money and thank God she got out before it got worse. I didn't know the extent of what was happening until she left. She was brave and smart enough to get out. She has tried to keep it from getting nasty and let him be a father to their son. We allowed him to stay in the trailer we owned as long as he paid the lot rent, he has no family here. He never paid the rent, gas got shut off, rarely even sees his son...much less be a parent to him, truck hasn't been licensed since March and he got arrested for not paying his tickets and not showing up for court...etc...etc...etc... He now owes up almost 3000.00 just for back rent and has not given my daughter 1 dime to help with their child. They dropped him to part time as needed at work because he is unreliable and they lost their health insurance so the surgery scheduled for their son on Nov 1st has to cancelled till my daughter can figure out what to do....I could go on and on.
So...why to I feel bad for him that we are kicking him out of the trailer today and he will be homeless? He did it to himself and had every opportunity to get out of it. I'm so emotional today and I can't get out of it. I'm trying really hard to stay busy and not think about it but I can't figure out what exactly I feel bad for.
