So, I’m sure by now the majority of us have heard and/or watched the video of Matthew Cordle confessing to killing a man, right? If not, here’s a short background on his story. Matthew Cordle, 22, made the decision to drive drunk after a night of bar hopping. Unfortunately, while driving the wrong way down Interstate 670 in Columbus, Ohio, Cordle struck an oncoming car killing the driver, Vincent Cazani.
His video was posted on a website called becauseisaidiwould.com which consist of people attempting to better the world “through the power of promise.” During the taping of the video, Cordle wrote on his promise card that he would take full responsibility of his actions. He also stated that he refused to dishonor Cazani’s legacy and family.
My questions to you:
Do you think Matthew Cordle did the right thing by confessing before charges were filed against him?
Is the media giving him too much praise for this confession?
What would you have done if you were in Cordle’s shoes?
