ONLY ON 3: Alleged bullying by deputy’s daughter turns violent in Bladen Co.

Monday, December 31st, 2012

BLADENBORO, NC (WWAY) — In Bladen County, one mother says her daughter has been dealing with a bully for months.

She says nothing is done because the bully’s father is a deputy.

Robin Porter says her daughter, Jessica, has been bullied by former classmate Courtney Bullard for the past year.

Now, the situation has turned violent, and this time, it was all caught on camera.

The video may be offensive to some viewers.

“My daughter has made the statement to me, she says, ‘Mama, I will kill myself. I can’t take it,'” said Robin Porter.

She says it all started when Bullard assaulted her daughter in February.

According to Porter, Bullard’s father, Bladen County Sheriff’s Deputy Greg Bullard, said he would handle the situation.

But Porter says over the course of the year, things only got worse.

She says Courtney Bullard has been threatening her daughter on Facebook, saying she was going to beat her up.

Two weeks ago, she says her daughter was lured into a set-up where onlookers shot the cell phone video.

Jessica’s mother and aunt believe Deputy Bullard has been covering up for his daughter.

“It’s always been in Bladen County who you are. That’s the favoritism part I don’t like. Just because who you are shouldn’t make a difference with the law,” said Porter’s aunt.

They say more needs to be done to prosecute bullies before things turn violent.

“I have gotten emails from numerous amounts of children telling me how they’ve been bullied and how the bullies got away with it,” said Robin Porter. “I’m just fed up.”

I spoke with Bladen County Sheriff Prentis Benston who said there is no attempt by the Sheriff’s Office to cover up anything.

Deputy Bullard was not on duty today, the Sheriff said he would contact Bullard for us, but so far, we have not heard back.
