    Really? His whole basis is that BDJ wouldn't do something like this, and that it's impossible to kick down a door. Then he mentions that he was asked to look after him while at ISU.

    I'm sure it's tough on Hallice, but he's obviously wearing his blinders.

    Some guy he never met hunted him down and had this intricate scheme to break a door down and set up the scene. He lured him to the door just so he could shoot through it.

    I get that Hallice was close to him and all, but everything I've seen says this was completely justified.

    He was clearly in the wrong but I think the guy was too. I just can't say he was right when he shot through a closed door.

    his closed bedroom door. Let's not just bypass the part where he'd already broken into the guys apartment

    He already broke into his house, and now was going for the bedroom. Sure, we can speculate that if he gets in he figures out he screwed up and nothing comes of it other than paying for damages but if I'm sleeping and all of a sudden someone's trying to bust down more door and they aren't answering me, I'm shooting.

    What should he have done when someone was beating on his locked bedroom door?

    Call 911. Yell some more, maybe try to find out what the intruder wants. Warn him that you have a gun. Wait and shoot him two seconds later. Make tea. Not many options.

    "Chrystal, who was driving, asked Bryce to go inside and pick up their daughter. Before he exited the car, however, she reminded him to grab the diaper bags and bottles. That set him off. As Chrystal placed their daughter in her car seat, she turned and saw Bryce walking away in a huff—down Peabody Avenue, then right onto Latimer Street."

    Well then. I had heard about BDJ's "hair-trigger temper" while in Ames, but this kinda sums it up.

    So Hallice is implying BDJ was robbed that night? I'm confused where he gets that logic, he tweeted something about find his wallet, amongst other tweets calling it Fake News. I'm sure it's been emotionally tough on him, but to say he didn't break into that apartment is a bit much.

    You just came up with three great options that would end up with someone not dead or at least potentially not dead.

    I've been woken up like that (similar not someone breaking in) a couple of times and I'm almost fully lucid in making decisions. I just don't think he was morally justified in shooting.

    "they found a last-minute babysitter via Craigslist"

    I wonder what an NBA player pays someone (off craigslist) to watch his kids

    Interesting. I wonder if BDJ had a gun at his house and what he would do if someone was breaking into his bedroom.

    In other words, you've never been in that situation.

    If someone has broken into your house during the night and is breaking into your bedroom and you call 911 with a gun at your disposal. Prepare for the cops to pick up your dead body vs saving you.

    Not specifically but I have been woken up at 3 in the morning by neighbors shooting off approximately $100 worth of fireworks at once. The first thing I did was reach for my phone to call 911 even though we didn't after realizing what was exploding.

    Well that completely different situation certainly proves your point.
