Karma does not have to be involved for something to be called schadenfreude.

A cyclist who falls can make me laugh even tho he did nothing to provoke the accident so karma is not involved.
Schadenfreude may Not be translateable 1:1 because its a German thing, Imagine sombody slipping on a banana peel, you as a angelonic would Rush to that Person and give aid and hold hands until the Krankenwagen comes. A German would cockle over laughing.
