The witness

Standing up to Joe ‘Quarterback,’ the bully
 

Dr. E. Jean Pierre-Pipkin was an educator in Beaumont for 45 years. Now 76 years old, the petite woman is retired but her memory is sharp as a tack, and she has not forgotten the brutal actions visited upon her in 2005 at age 70 by Jefferson County Constable for Precinct 6 Joe “Quarterback” Stevenson, who currently wants voters to elect him sheriff.


During his 15 years as constable, Stevenson has been dogged by reports of thuggish behavior, domestic violence and official harassment but the charges always seemed to melt away before he could be held to account. Media accounts from 2008 document a temporary restraining order issued by Judge Ron Walker after a female friend testified about multiple occasions where she was choked, kicked and punched by Stevenson. A week later, the restraining order was dropped for “insufficient evidence.”


Dr. Pierre-Pipkin refused to back down in 2005 and paid a heavy price for her courage.  At the time, she was director of an Adult Education GED Program for BISD. While setting up a graduation ceremony at Ozen High School, she described how she was confronted by an “out of control” Constable Stevenson in the school parking lot.
She reported this misconduct by a public official in a letter to Attorney General Greg Abbott in specific detail, telling how “he accosted me in a threatening, intimidating and abusive manner; detained me by blocking me from entering my car for about 10 minutes as he waved handcuffs at me; yelled at me before a crowd of people …”


Not only did Abbott fail to take any action to assist her, he turned her letter over the man who accosted her, Constable Stevenson – a bully with a badge known for his intimidating manner who towered over her. Unfortunately, Stevenson did take action and issued a warrant for her arrest on some vague charges and had her arrested at school and had this dignified, professional woman booked into jail. In addition to suffering the indignity of the arrest and jail experience, Pierre-Pipkin said it cost her nearly $2,000 to resolve the legal retaliation Stevenson visited on her for writing that letter to the attorney general. Although justice was denied in her case, she never forgot the horrors of 2005 and this week said “every word in that letter is true, though, and I stand by that.”


But this time the intimidation hasn’t worked. Stevenson will have to confront a witness he victimized seven years ago who refuses to back down. As Dr. Pierre-Pipkin said Wednesday, “I’m not afraid of that thug.”


While the statute of limitations on the crimes committed by Constable Stevenson against this woman has long since expired, there is no statute of limitations on human decency or lack of same, and Joe “Quarterback” Stevenson must ultimately be held to account.

STANDING UP TO JOE "QUARTERBACK" THE BULLY

ONE GOOD THING WILL COME OUT OF JOE "QB" STEVENSON RUNNING FOR SHERIFF OF JEFFERSON COUNTY. THAT IS AFTER HE LOSES, HE WILL HAVE TO RETIRE AS CONSTABLE OF PCT. 6. THEN HE WILL NO LONGER BE AN ELECTED OFFICIAL IN THIS COUNTY. BECAUSE HE MADE THE CHOICE TO RUN FOR SHERIFF, INSTEAD RUNNING FOR RE-ELECTION AS CONSTABLE OF PCT. 6. JOE, YOU SHOULD HAVE NEVER GIVEN UP YOUR POSITION AS CONSTABLE. BUT NOW YOU CAN GO HOME TO LIVE WITH YOUR MOMMA AND ENJOY YOUR RETIREMENT.

JOE "Q.B." STEVENSON FOR JEFFERSON COUNTY SHERIFF ?

JUST TO MAKE YOU QUESTION THE FACTS. IT WAS STATED THAT THIS WOMAN WAS DRIVING RECKLESS THRU THE PARKING LOT AT OZEN HIGH SCHOOL IN THE VIEW OF A "PEACE OFFICER" AKA CONSTABLE JOE "QB" STEVENSON. WHY DIDN'T HE ARREST HER IF HE FELT SHE WAS ENDANGERING THE LIVES OF THE STUDENTS AND CITIZENS. HE STATED BECAUSE HE DIDN'T WANT TO INTERFER WITH THE GRADUATION PROGRAM. WHATS MORE IMPORTANT, A GRADUATION PROGRAM OR THE LIVES OF OUR CITIZENS ? DO WE WANT A SHERIFF THAT WOULD BE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT DITRUPTING A PROGRAM, THAN ALLOWING SOMEONE TO ENDANGER THE LIVES OF OUR CHILDREN AND CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTY ?

Question

Why is it that the article and all of these response are done by Anonymous? Why are you afraid to show your names? Even the person who wrote the articl will not give their name. To me that shows that you are afraid to say who you are because what you are saying is not the truth. Funny I know ALOT of, as you put it "educated blacks" that are voting for Joe "QB" Stevenson. Why is it that no one is talking about what mitch has done to so many officers in the past. I know of several officers that used to work for him, but because they did not agree with him and asked question they were terminated. What about what happened in Port Arthur in the 70's. Why are you not reporting on that? What agbout the officers that shot and killed the donkeys from a public roadway with a high powered rifle? Last time I checked that was a felony offense and what wsa done to the officers? NOTHING!!!

As far as Dr. E. Jean Pierre-Pipkin, even the teachers at BISD say the woman is CRAZY and can not be believed. Joe "QB" Stevenson could have arrested her on the spot by the way she was driving through the parking lot almost hitting several students. What QB did was instead of disruting a graduation by throwing her in jail, he waited and filed on her with the District Attornies Office. Funny how the DA's office took the case and then Dr. E. Jean Pierre-Pipkin plead QUILTY to the charge. If QB was as dumb as you people say he is then he would not have been able to get a conviction and her plead out. Guess he had an open and shut case!!!

As far as Ben Collins, if I remember correctly, Ben told Joe that if he was elected Joe had better find another place to work. So what is the difference???

Well I guess I have said enough for now. To bad this rag of a paper is considered the National Enquier of Jefferson County. Now I see why, they never check to see if a story has another side and just love to throw mud even if it is not true. It is a very one sided sory everytime!!!!! I hope this gets published but we will see?

'QUESTION BY JOHN "CENTER" DOE AKA "BALL SNAPPER"

I HAVE A QUESTION FOR JOHN. WHAT POSITION DID YOU PLAY WITH JOE "QB" STEVENSON ? I BET YOU WERE HIS CENTER? THE GUY THAT BENDS OVER IN FRONT OF THE QUARTERBACK AND SNAPS THE BALLS". "I BET YOU TWO STILL PRACTICE HUH"?????. STEVEN GARCIA, BEAUMONT, TEXAS

WELL,WELL

I was going to respond when I saw the first response you wrote. But after reading the second there is nothing I have to say except I guess this shows your mentality, or lack there of. What is it with you and all of you homosexual thoughts? Just wondering? If this is the rype of person mitdch has backing him that is a scary thought!!!!! You answered one of my questions which I believe is a stretch but what abbout the others? Anyway, I am done with this rag and the people who read it. I heard there were some bad things on here and wanted to see for myself. Like I said in my first post this is a gossip rag and the people like Mr. Garcia well he explained himself enough!!!!!

WELL, WELL BY JOHN DOE

YOU NEED TO STOP LISTENING THE THE "QB" AND GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. BEFORE YOU REPLY AND SHOW HOW MUCH OF A IDIOT YOU REALLY ARE.

WELL, WELL

JOHN IS NOT MAN ENOUGH TO GIVE HIS LAST NAME, I WONDER WHY ? IS IT BECAUSE HE DOSN'T KNOW WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT OR JUST TOO MUCH OF A COWARD ? HE'S ABOUT AS FULL OF HIMSELF AS JOE "QB" STEVENSON. STOP REPLYING JOHN, THERE ARE TOO MANY FLIES AROUND YOUR COMPUTER, BECAUSE ALL YOU'RE TYPING IS BULLSHIT.

QUESTION SUBMITTED BY JOHN, I GUESS HIS LAST NAME IS DOE.

JOHN, YOU MUST BE ANOTHER OF JOE'S CHEERLEADERS. WHY DIDN'T YOU PUT YOUR LAST NAME OR IS JOHN YOUR REAL NAME. YOU NEED TO GET YOUR FACT STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU MAKE A REPLY. JOE STEVENSON TURNED DOWN THE CHIEF DEPUTY POSITION, WHEN CONSTABLE JOESEPH "COACH" SIMPSON OFFERED IT TO HIM AND RECOMMENDED BEN COLLINS AS CHIEF DEPUTY. BEN COLLINS TRAINED JOE STEVENSON AS A DEPUTY CONSTABLE. AFTER CONSTABLE ANNOUNCED HE WAS RETIRING, CONSTABLE SIMPSON ENDORSED BEN COLLINS. BEN COLLINS OFFERED JOE STEVENSON THE CHIEF DEPUTY POSITION IF HE WAS ELECTED. JOE DECIDED HE DIDNOT WANT TO BE CHIEF DEPUTY,HE WANTED TO BE THE CONSTABLE. AFTER THE ELECTED JOE DECIDED THAT BEN COULDN'T BE "LOYAL" TO HIM, WITHOUT EVEN GIVING THE MAN A CHANCE. IF ANYONE HAS ANY DOUBT WHY NOT ASK BEN COLINS OR JOE SIMPSON, THEY BOTH STILL LIVE HERE IN BEAUMONT, TEXAS. COACH SIMPSON IS RETIRED, BUT BEN COLLINS IS STILL A DEPUTY CONSTABLE. ASK THEM FOR YOURSELF. MY NAME IS STEVEN H. GARCIA, BEAUMONT, TEXAS

"JOE "QB" STEVENSON FOR SHERIFF, NOT IN THIS COUNTY" !!!!!!

LARGE BLACK VOTER TURN OUT DOESN'T MEAN ALL THE BLACKS ARE VOTING FOR JOE "QB" STEVENSON. ALL THE EDUCATED BLACKS THAT KNOW HIM WOULDN'T VOTE FOR HIM. JOE HAS BEEN AN EMBRASSMENT TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY SINCE HE WAS FIRST ELECTED IN 1996. I REMEMBER WHEN BENJAMIN "BEN" COLLINS RAN AGAINST JOE FOR CONSTABLE IN 1996. BEN COLLINS WAS THE CHIEF DEPUTY OF PCT. 6 CONSTABLE'S OFFICE FOR JOE "COACH" SIMPSON. BEN COLLLINS WAS A MORE QUALIFIED CANDIATE, BUT THE VOTERS CHOOSE ALL THIS FOOTBALL CRAMP. JOE DIDN'T FEEL THAT BEN COLLINS WOULD BE LOYAL TO HIM AND LEFT A VETERAN OFFICER, HUSBAND AND FATHER WITH A PREGNANT WIFE WITHOUT A JOB. THE WORST PART OF THIS IS THESE TWO BLACK OFFICERS GREW UP TOGETHER, WENT TO SCHOOL TOGETHER, JOE WAS EVEN IN BEN'S WEDDING. IF THIS IS HOW HE TREATS A FRIEND, HOW DO YOU THINK HE WILL TREAT THE SHERIFF'S DEPT. EMPLOYEE'S AND THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTY AS SHERIFF? ITS A SAD DAY WHEN POPULARITY BEATS OUT QUALIFICATIONS IN POLITICS. WHAT KIND OF MESSAGE ARE WE SENDING OUR CHILDREN ? WHEN IT COMES TO POLITICS YOU CAN BE THE VILLAGE IDIOT, BUT AS LONG AS YOU'RE BLACK ALL THE BLACK WILL VOTE FOR YOU AND YOU'LL GET ELECTED ?

JOE "QB" STEVENSON IS NOT THE NEXT BARACK OBAMA

I HAVE LIVED IN JEFFERSON COUNTY FOR 52 YEARS, I HAVE HAD THE HONOR OF WORKING WITH SOME OF THE FINEST LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS AND ELECTED OFFICIALS IN THIS COUNTY. BUT I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH AS OUT OF CONTROL, SELF CENTERED, ARROGANT, IGNORANT, UNEDUCATED ELECTED OFFICIAL LIKE JOE "QB" STEVENSON. HOW HE KEEPS GETTING RE-ELECTED AS CONSTABLE IS UNBELIEVEABLE. NOW HE WANTS TO BE ELECTED AS YOUR NEXT SHERIFF. HE EVEN WROTE A SONG ABOUT IT. "REALLY" ?. SUPPORTING OUR BLACK ELECTED OFFICIAL'S IS GREAT, BUT LET SUPPORT AND VOTE FOR SOMEONE WE CAN STANDUP FOR AND BE PROUD TO CALL OUR SHERIFF. JOE "QB" STEVENSON IS NOT OUR FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA AND DOESN'T DESERVE TO BE EVEN CONSIDERED AS OUR FIRST BLACK SHERIFF OF JEFFERSON COUNTY, TEXAS.

JOE "Q.B." STEVENSON FOR JEFFERSON COUNTY SHERIFF ?

THE OLD U.N.C.F. SAYING "A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE". I HAVE A NEW SAYING FOR OUR FELLOW BLACK VOTERS " A VOTE FOR JOE "QB" STEVENSON IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE". IF YOU DON'T STAND FOR SOMETHING, YOU'LL FALL FOR ANYTHING. DON'T FALL FOR JOE "QB" STEVENSON, HE IS NOT ABOUT HELPING OUR COMMUNITY. ELECTING JOE STEVENSON WILL NOT ONLY BE A EMBARRASSMENT TO OUR BLACK COMMUNITY, BUT TO ALL OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS AND THE CITIZENS OF JEFFERSON COUNTY.

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THIS

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THIS COMMENT. JOE "SIMPLE MINDED" STEPHENSON WILL NEVER BE ELECTED SHERIFF IF HE'S COUNTING ON A VOTE FROM ME!!!!!!! TOTAL IDIOT WITH A BADGE!!!!

I HATE TO ADMITT THAT I DATED

I HATE TO ADMITT THAT I DATED JOE "QB" STEVENSON IN THE PAST. THE WOMEN THAT KNOW HIM REFER TO JOE "QB" STEVENSON AS JOE "3-THUMBS" STEVENSON. "HE HAS A THUMB ON EACH HAND AND ONE BETWEEN IS LEGS". IT WAS WORST 30 SECONDS OF MY LIFE, BECUASE I COULDN'T KEEP FROM LAUGHING. THAT'S WHY HE LIKES TO BEAT ON WOMEN, BECAUSE THEY ALL LAUGH AT HIM AND HE CAN'T DO ANYTHING ELSE.

JOE "Q.B." STEVENSON FOR JEFFERSON COUNTY SHERIFF ?

"ADMIT IS SPELLED ADMIT". I GUESS YOU'RE STILL IN SHOCK OVER THAT 54 YEAR OLD MOMMA'S BOY CONSTABLE JOE "3-THUMBS" STEVENSON. LMFAO

May he reap what he sows.

May he reap what he sows.
