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.”

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

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

You got the facts wrong, her parents were not looking forward to going on TV, but couldn’t get the response they needed for action to be taken. This was the only way to let people see that our law enforcement were hindering the process.

Have u actually seen Greg Bullard? He is as busy as acat covering up crap when it comes to his Courtney.She does no wrong.Greg is to worried Luann will leave him to make Courtney mind.She actually gave consent to being videoed by looking straight into the camera and acknowledging her actions.Set up, maybe by Courtney. She spit on Jessica, watch the video closely, that is about as low as u can go.

Courtney is exactly what u saw and has been for years, her parents are good people alright. If saying GD every other word makes u a good person and drinking like a fish then Greg is.Lu Ann is a wolf in sheeps clothing, she’s everybody’s friend to their face.Her husband controls whther or not she can even speak to someone.It makes a big difference that he is a deputy in this county, conflict of interest.I know them personally and I can tell u first hand!!!The parents make it about themselves when they allow her to back talk, stay out all… Read more »

Again, the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree. And she hasn’t fought there that you know of. Just like you don’t know of a lot of things she keeps from you. She’s a 16 year old girl, she knows all the tricks.
