I’m hoping Abbey wins this; nothing against Sue, I just like Abbey better. Also, I disagree with Paulo, because then Abbey would be expelled due to him winning (like I said).
twalker500 December 22, 2010, 12:07 AM EST.
I find i sorta agree with abbey. As some one who was bullied through out primary and high school i can see where he is coming from. If i were to address the issue correctly tho i would have a 3 strikes no tolerance system. You mess up 3 times your out, but not loosely, i was at a school that had a similar system but to get a strike you basically had to kill some one(not really but you get the point) That way you can make a mistake or 2 and still be around as well as feel mounting pressure not to bully people as you can see your own doom incoming with the loss of strikes.
Mind you the bullying has done some good for me, im tough as nails now, no one can fluster me or upset me. But i think i would have preferred happy and safe formative years as apposed to growing up to be an angry tank.

I think some bullies should rot in he’ll but not all of then give some a chance and when they blow it take out your 9 and cap that sorry mother fuka
Mike still needs to be bitch slapped for what he did last page he almost made Lucy cry! I’m a chargin my fireball! Leeeeeeerrooooyyy jeeeeeeennkiiiiinsss

And oh dear, Abbey rage. Not even Tess has anything to say- Paulo is the only one to speak up, and knowing his suggestions…

JetFire December 22, 2010, 12:41 AM EST.
Awww poor Abbey, he obviously still has some deep physiological issues going on here. But I respect what he’s trying to do, he’s just going at it all wrong. He’s just trying to rid the world of bullies, but doesn’t realize/care how complicated it is. I feel so bad for him now
RandomGirlontheInterwebs December 22, 2010, 12:45 AM EST.
Abbeys first mistake was his reaction too paulos question. He could have instead emberassed Paulo by asking him a series of questions starting with somthing like “care to Elaborate?” his second was loseing his calm. By responding to each of sues questions with a calm voice he could have easily made her look like a raving idiot he instead ended up killing any chance of winning due to poor presentation
Godless December 22, 2010, 12:46 AM EST.
First rule of debate is to stick to your guns. If your opposition successfully plays to your emotions the debate derails far off track and your entire argument is moot. If Abbey were to go back to the original question with a cooler head and derail Sue subtly, he’d be back on the right track.
Won’t happen though. :B
Edit: Hell, if he kept cool after his first melt down he could put it back on track and redeemed himself and made Sue look like a mudslinger in one fell swoop. Right now he just looks like a child who isn’t getting his own way. I could go on all day. Debate drama!
Tychon December 22, 2010, 12:52 AM EST.
I have a feeling that Abbey is strawmanning there.
CherryKyon December 22, 2010, 12:54 AM EST.
Tess’s situation dropped my ***! haha
on the other hand I do not like Abbey’s reaction (in terms of drawing) on 5th panel. Much more than anger, i see a child “want that candy badly”. (i hope u understand what i mean)

Daisy’s stare has forced paulo to abbey’s side apparantly. Whether this is because of some sort of previously dormant mind control abilities she has just uncovered, or simply pure fear remains to be seen…

Saint Christopher December 22, 2010, 1:21 AM EST.
Hm… by the way things are going Abby has no chance at winning if
he keeps up his attitude, also I am under the impression that he
might finally snap and might attack either Paulo and/or Sue for
questioning him, chances are he will attack Paulo. :raise:
Darf14 December 22, 2010, 1:29 AM EST.
…And then they had hate sex in front of everyone. Daisy exploded from the extreme drama that it would bring while Lucy and Mike had their own hateful love. Paulo died. The end.

I know this crazy kid at school. He yells loudly for no good reason, has people stare threateningly at those who disagree with him, and smashes inanimate objects when he’s angry. Should we expel him before he loses his temper and lashes out in rage and confusion?

thepriddyone December 22, 2010, 1:47 AM EST.
The hyperbole is no more ridiculous than Abbey’s view of the issue (not to suggest that two wrongs make a right, here). However, we’ve also just been given keen insight into why Abbey doesn’t see anything necessarily wrong with his use of violence against bullies in the past, and it has everything to do with the fact that he couches the entire situation in terms of Good Guys and Bad Guys with no Greys. Bad Guys attack innocents, and Good Guys protect innocents. Because bullies are clearly the bad guys here, and Abbey fights against, them, then he is a Good Guy. The ends justify the means; it doesn’t matter how he defends the innocents, it only matters that he does.
I still hope that Sue beats him in the race, but less because I disagree with his policies and more because I don’t think holding the position, even just in student government, would be good for his mental health.
PhycoKrusk December 22, 2010, 1:53 AM EST.

Sieg Mein Abbey! Sieg Sieg heil! Sieg heil! Fascist Abbey is awesome <3 new fave character. Ok seriously though… Passion aside…
Personally I cannot agree that the end justifies the means and that power should be concentrated in Abbey’s hands as sole arbiter as it brings up a whole new debate. “Who guards the guards?” Inherently Abbey may be doing the right thing but he has already proven himself to be no better than what he claims to be fighting against, using people as political props; scare tactics to silence dissent; failing to remain collected. Absolutist statements also do not help Abbey’s case.
That aside what is so wrong with bullies? Are people so weak-minded that they believe that there is no such thing as life after high school; that the hierarchies that are built in high school will just crumble upon graduation?
selvy December 22, 2010, 2:22 AM EST.
Hitler Paulo approves of Abbey’s fascism.
Sands from DA December 22, 2010, 2:39 AM EST.
@selvy As I said, Abbey sees the issues solely in terms of Good Guys, Bad Guys, and Bystanders, and as long as he fights the bad Guys to protect the Bystanders, then he is a Good Guy, no matter how he fights.
Also, I don’t quite understand your last statement. Did you mean to pose the question about no life after high school in that the hierarchies built during high school do crumble upon graduation? In the real world, nobody cares who you were in high school: the cheer captain and president of the chess club are equally worthless until they prove otherwise.
PhycoKrusk December 22, 2010, 2:41 AM EST.
Geez, Abbey, don’ go too far off the deep end. I’d rather not see you get own’d by Sue!

I’m enjoying every aspect of this chapter.
I don’t know which side I agree with more… both prove points, and have flaws.
But, if Abbey goes for Paulo’s suggestion… poor, poor Abbey… Ownage will come from Sue. And in seconds.
Frair December 22, 2010, 3:49 AM EST.
I can almost hear any hope of Abbey winning evaporating into thin air.

C December 22, 2010, 4:05 AM EST.
Hard to agree. Both prove good points. But im for abbey. Its better to stop something than to merely try to prevent any bullying to happen. But I think sue will win
Anon December 22, 2010, 4:07 AM EST.
I’ll have to agree with Sue, though. That is kind of fascist. It’s good to know both sides of the situation before taking action and giving punishment.
Oh, and as for Paulo, cue angry daisy. lol.
Memory Anemone December 22, 2010, 4:07 AM EST.
Hmmm am i REALLY really really the only one who think that Abbey’s reaction now makes ABSOLUTLY NO SENSE?
I mean it’s like the whole sommer thing didn’t happen.he was much much calmer even before he got in therapy.And now after that he got anger issue’s ? Yeah that just proofs that a therapist makes things worse.
I hope there is a very good reason why he has changed so much or i lose my faith in the character development here.
Still, Vote for Abbey. Bullie’s should really rot in hell.
Little Smile December 22, 2010, 4:10 AM EST.

Well, while I don’t advocate any sort of bullying, the fact is Abbey’s being a hypocrite. Anyone who acts like they’re worthy of judging their peers, especially in such a harsh manner, is nothing but a bully themselves. Once again I find myself completely disappointed in Abbey’s behavior. Judgemental *****.

also can anyone read what’s on Tess’ sheet?

well, Abbey’s letting his personal feelings get in the way of running a school…besides why are they even fighting about this? aren’t they running for secretary? lol that’s a debate for the vice-presidential and presidential candidates isn’t it?

I’ll bet both loose the votes and David wins somehow ha!

i.will.stay.unkown..... December 22, 2010, 7:55 AM EST.
Abbey is really showing his anger, and that is not good. Because Pain leads to Anger, Anger leads to Hate and Hate leads a path towards the DARK SIDE.
Yeah a reference to Star Wars……….so sue me.
EpicLOLage December 22, 2010, 7:57 AM EST.
This is where the debate should end, in a situation like this.
And Abbey looks like he’s relapsing. Poor guy. It’s not that all that therapy didn’t help him - it did- but he’s going to need more than just a summer’s worth of therapy. Traumatic experiences may take longer to get through for some people. Plus, let’s face it, Abbey has a temper. When you’re really passionate about something, it can boil your blood. I know from personal experiences because Italians are that way. You see it as either passion or a really nasty temper.
But Sue has made some good points. Some bullies, like Tess, don’t deserve expulsion. Tess is one of those that is repenting for what she did, even if most of the school still doesn’t like her. That alone is punishment enough, but to expell her would be overkill. In fact, I’m sure a good portion of the school would be missing.
I’d be scared if I were Tess too. Completely unable to do anything in the face of this verbal violence, because it is scary. But it would be kudos to her if she did stand up and say something to dispel the situation.
Paulo, you silly boy. You’re definitely not helping, but I did chuckle xDD
(And also, fyi, I’m female 8D)

And then Abbey reveals the story about his father and walks off stage, over the next few weeks he hears more and more muttering about him around the school, he reaches the point of leaving, to Daisy’s horror, then it turns out he won and he goes into a joint leadership with Sue!nnEither that or David wins.

These things take time to get over as was stated in a comment above. It might not ever go away either…but at least he could learn some methods to peacefully deal with it

I understand what abby is coming from. I too was bullied from 1st grade to the first part of high school. Lickly it ended at high school. i was alone and none cared. but i made great friends in high school and that changed alot.
But i agree with sue. that not all bullies cannot change. some or little can.
but there should be a no tolerance policy towards bullying. it really must end the bullying now.
Adiemus December 22, 2010, 11:05 AM EST.

Taeshi December 22, 2010, 11:19 AM EST.
I think they are both right to a degree, the school does need to up its policies if random people are wandering in and harassing students, and we have seen a significant lack of any teacher intervention. Have we even seen any teachers who aren’t disembodied voices in front of classrooms? In high school many students do form influential mentor relationships to teachers and this comic hasn’t shown that.
The school needs to protect students, from themselves and each other. However expulsion won’t help reform any bullies, won’t help them, after all bullies in this case are kids too, not adult convicts, they should be separated from their victims, but kids can change, like Tess, if someone tries to understand why they lash out. I agree with Sue, but her name calling reflects poorly on debating skills, but many adult politicians are much, much worse.

I can see what Abbey is saying. I was bulled most of my middle school life. But expelling them is harsh. How do we know if he is the bully or the on trying to help. So I’m going with Sue…..mostly because Mccain’s on her side.
John Wolf December 22, 2010, 11:39 AM EST.

Asche December 22, 2010, 1:47 PM EST.
She heard his entire life story. She knows how he is feeling about this and, despite the fact that he denies it, he is bringing his emotions to the debate since mainly he is annoyed by bullying and has seen it through the abuse his mother has been given.

Where do you draw the line between bullying and just a minor argument or fall out?
After being through the entirety of Primary school and the first couple of years of Comprehensive (5 - 12/13) with bullying from several different people, one of them who I’m actually a good friend with, I can tell you absolute punishment doesn’t mean absolute saftey, it’s the same principle of the death penalty, except the addition of the fact it simply moves the problem somewhere else.
If someone constantly annoyed me for 3 days, then completley forgot about me, is that bullying?
What about 4 days? 5 days? 6 days?
What behaviour counts as bullying, I mess around with freinds, and some pretty offensive banter gets thrown around most of the time, if there is a misunderstanding or series of misunderstandings, is that bullying.
Most ‘bullies’ don’t try to torture or abuse people, most don’t think it’s pleasurable or fun, I know many people who, in high school, claimed they were being bulled, when in actual fact they were just being rich kids with superiority complexes.
Whilst they got help, several others I knew who faced actual bullying for over a year received no support.
Bullying isn’t a single, definable thing, and it’s an overused term.
Anyone who uses ‘rot in hell’ obviously has some serious issues, most bullies don’t know any better, some do, it’s a situation-by-situation matter.
I’m going to go find something better to do with my time.
The Bromeister December 22, 2010, 2:30 PM EST.
kylus December 22, 2010, 2:41 PM EST.
i like abbeys thought on this. bullies should be punished. i think they should be beaten
kickash December 22, 2010, 2:42 PM EST.
I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me before now…
But perhaps Abbey was also bullied in the past.
We know pretty much nothing about him ‘cause like Tess, he was introduced as a new character separate from all the old friends. I imagine he was put through hell something fierce.
That would explain a lot. Only a victim could perhaps really find it impossible to be objective.
Besides, who is to say what real bullying is? I imagine there are all types….
DiDi December 22, 2010, 2:53 PM EST.
I think Abbey is rather biased, here. Considering his history, it is understandable, but I figure someone as smart as him should take that into account.
I’m leaning more towards Sue’s ideals, but I don’t think she shouldn’t approach them with complete ignorance in mind. Which I doubt she would, Abbey just seems to be taking it that way.
Though, we haven’t heard much of what Sue thinks, just that she thinks Abbey’s decisions are too extreme, so I guess I don’t actually know her true ideals for this topic.

I don’t think that they should rot in hell. But they should be punished….severly. As a person who delt with bullying EVERY ****IN DAY….I think that the teachers need to start paying attention.

Why expel the bullies? If we all just ignore them beating on children they will eventually get bored and stop by themselves…. Oh wait that is stupid
I vote for Abbey because there is a difference between violence and justice!
Better yet could we give the bullies capital punishment and cure the problem for the whole of society?
Zinc December 22, 2010, 3:31 PM EST.
Abbey has crossed the line between violence and justice, even if I agree with him. Dude needs to form a secret police to discreetly get rid of all the identified bullies.

You know, ever since Abbey first appeared, I’ve always imagined him having a British accent for some reason, perhaps it was his very polite and formal stature. Anyways, now that they’re having political debates and he’s being very forward, he now seems like the BCB equivalent of Nigel Farage.

No, just joking, but still.

Abbey’s made a point just by making this speech. I smell two weeks of walking the hallways fearing for their lives, then going back to the same old same old. But still, it’s a bad policy.
Taking things personal? I think not!

Keno December 23, 2010, 12:44 AM EST.
I wouldn’t call his reaction so overly dramatic and say its more trauma or his overly passionate ideas. But I’m sure someone thought of this in the other 200+ comments, so I’m just tooting another persons horn at this point.
I get the feeling this won’t end well for our good friend, Abby. An outburst like that is the kind of thing a leader isn’t supposed to have. It at least gives the impression that personal beliefs are getting in the way of good decision making and no amount of words can justify that.
This story is getting very in-depth and very deep. I still remember when this comic was all about comedy, but now its got a beautiful and progressing story with wonderful character development, moments that would make even a hardened man tear up and it still keeps some comedy here and there; and on top of that, the comedy is placed far enough apart, that you get a good laugh every time.
I’ll applaud this comic. Its beautiful, well written and enjoyable. Here’s to you, Bittersweet Candy Bowl. Here’s to you.

Just because Sue doesn’t want to over punish bullies, it doesn’t mean she’ll let the school with ‘zero protection’ for students.
Geez, there’s something between everything and nothing, people!

At the beginning of the chapter Tess was wearing a band that had the star on it, after some pages it transformed into a chain necklace.

Obsidian December 23, 2010, 1:25 PM EST.
@That Guy With No Name Sue’s issue is not that Abbey wants to punish bullies. Her issue is that Abbey is advocating immediate expulsion for bullying. He has presented his stance as being one that supports immediate expulsion of bullies regardless of the offence. Beating up on someone? Expulsion. Glaring at someone menacingly and making them afraid of you? Expulsion.
It’s akin to advocating for life imprisonment for shoplifting: It stops shoplifting, yes. But it will also drive some would-be shoplifters to show up with guns and clean out the tills. Zero-tolerance does not, never has, and never will work, unless your only goal is to take a larger number of minor offences and turn them into a fewer number of serious offences.
PhycoKrusk December 23, 2010, 1:33 PM EST.
merry christmas! and… someone is going to die.
Kitsonpaw December 23, 2010, 1:44 PM EST.
So under Abby’s rules, he himself would be expelled since hes being a bully right now, using fear to get the reaction he wants and threatening anyone who disagrees with him. Didn’t think that one through now did you Abby

apoc December 23, 2010, 2:41 PM EST.
@PhycoKrusk Aye I do agree that putting things in absolutist terms is inherently a fallacy. It does make for good rhetoric though! As well as good webcomic >.<
It was also a general comment about hierarchies in society that was phrased as sort of a snide remark on teenagers/iteration of my personal view. As it appears to me the prevalent view in high school is that it is the be all end all of one’s young life. I was merely commenting that the bullies don’t go away after high school but that’s a whole other vein of thought.
I do like your shoplifting analogy; very apt.
selvy December 23, 2010, 2:49 PM EST.
Abbey’s only gotten particularly mad 4 times thusfar. The other 3 involved violence. Good thing Sue’s a girl, or I’d be expecting it now. The reasoning comes from Abbey’s other 3 being in defense of a girl.
Hoheh December 23, 2010, 3:20 PM EST.

Then I remember that his father is abusive and killed his mother. ;A;

Bullies should be decapitated by the demons in hell, then tortured for 500 years in hell, then burned in hell.
Or bullies should be tortured by pinhead.

Nero December 23, 2010, 10:46 PM EST.
Whoa… leniency or strictness for bullies?
I would’ve gone for Abbey had I not found his hate for bullies… he’s just being a real D*ck now…
Sue on the other hand, I find her to be a bit too lenient…

KratosTheBlood December 23, 2010, 11:36 PM EST.
What Taeshi said. Also, hopefully not violence to come next page. Something tells me criminal records are getting nearer to likely for them.

Also that was mad observant, Lisa. Guess I’ll have to fix that when I am able to

“hit her!!!!” *blobs look at paulo*

wtf “hit her” wtf what does that mean and why is it there i dont get it
firestar December 24, 2010, 10:17 PM EST.
Oh firestar, don’t be stupid.
“Hit her!” means exactly what it sounds like. He’s suggesting that Abbey should “Hit her!” —Sue, that is. It’s funny because that would be bullying, which is what Abbey is throwing a fit about. It would make him into a bully.
At least, it was funny, until it had to be explained. Then it wasn’t funny any more.
Meex December 24, 2010, 11:13 PM EST.

joefox December 26, 2010, 7:37 PM EST.
Paulo ^_^ is the serious comic relief which I love dearly. I don’t think he wants so much as the violence, but more just to make Abby look like an idiot.
Abby: me smash!
Paulo: Hit her!
Marco ^_^ December 27, 2010, 2:46 PM EST.
Oh for flying out loud, you can’t fight fire with fire, Abbey.

ben.duffa-kover April 7, 2011, 4:54 PM EST.
Best argument in the entire world. You’d never see this **** in real life, though I wish you could.
Are no teachers concerned with bad language? In my school, they’d be all over your *** if you swore in front of them, let alone a large mass of people in an audience. Guess nobody cares here, though.
Abbey needs to take a walk. Apparently, all that “help” and “therapy” he got is really paying off, isn’t it?
NintendoSegaSonyGuy May 24, 2011, 3:21 PM EST.
ok the first two panels are obviously Phoenix Wright references.

Or hit as in…”hit” if you catch mah drift….dude.

Jinxor August 24, 2011, 12:53 PM EST.
And just like that, everyone remembers Abbey’s dad was a crazyperson and he is not exactly Mister Stable himself.
You just lost my vote, Abs. I am so sorry, but I could not vote for someone so clearly in the grips of punitive madness.
Nietzsche said “Mistrust all in whom the urge to punish is strong.” and I agree. I am with you on strict measures against bullying… I think it should be treated as the crime it is, in fact, after all, beating people up for fun is illegal when adults do it to each other, isn’t it?
But now I don’t trust your stability or restraint.
Fruvous September 9, 2011, 9:01 AM EST.
This is my RAEG face. Scared yet?
Hoheh! March 5, 2012, 1:37 AM EST.
I sense that Abbey’s Rage Level is… OVER 9000!!
Random Guy: What! 9000?!
ScrabMaster April 8, 2012, 10:39 PM EST.
Reading through the comments section on this actually scares me.
Bullying is a complex issue and forcing a kid who has been bullying to leave the school and go somewhere else does not fix /anything/.
I have been bullied. I know what it’s like. None of the kids who bullied me even got punished at all. I asked people who knew them how they are several years later in high school. One was a very nice, supportive member of the basketball team, the other I personally began to become a friendly acquaintance of.
Bullies are people too, you know. If I heard someone suggest Abbey’s policy in my school, I would quite frankly want to go to a different high school if it passed. Plenty of people, including myself, have gone into the realm of bullying without even noticing. And a rule like that is too easy to twist to someone’s advantage.
Reminds me of an Ozy and Millie comic, where a bully kept pushing a girl over, but when she finally got the courage to defend herself and punch back, she got in trouble, and not the bully.
amberbydreams April 21, 2012, 2:00 PM EST.
Reading this with Phoenix Wright corned music felt weird. Very weird.
Xephix May 26, 2012, 1:39 AM EST.
@amberbydreams I AGREE! and I can completely relate! I was bullied throughout grade 5-6… 2 years down the road, I met up with the guy again! Coolest guy I ever got to know!
