Carmen Chamblee made a couple of big mistakes. The first was seeking revenge. As stated above, revenge can cause one to lose the benefits of innocence (such as being free.) As an angry woman, Carmen apparently wanted revenge on her ex-boyfriend. This 19-year-old Florida woman set what she thought was her ex-boyfriend's Honda Accord on fire. The second mistake was to assume that there were no surveillance cameras in the area. Surveillance is nearly everywhere. Not surprisingly, Carmen's smile for the camera was memorialized on video surveillance, Third, if you are going to go against conventional wisdom and seek revenge, make sure it is your ex-boyfriend's car before you trash it. Here, Carmen failed to properly identify the car as her boyfriend's and as a result, an innocent bystander's car was set ablaze. (Thomas Jennings, the innocent owner of the vehicle, apparently did not even know this woman.)
Carmen Chamblee has been charged with second-degree arson. She was taken to Pinellas County Jail for processing. Carmen Chamblee is to be presumed innocent until otherwise proven in a court of law: however, given the video, don't be surprised if the defense does not seek a plea deal. Perhaps temporary jealousy resulting in complete insanity?
