Five Year Anniversary

Once again, Constable Ron Hickman did NOT contact our family or Scott's mother on or even near the five year anniversary death of my husband, Tanner's daddy and Betty's son. After the supreme sacrificce for the community, his brothers and sisters in uniform at Pct. 4, no one called us or sent cards just to let us know they were thinking about us. At to see the wonderful notes left behind from people whoe do not even know us. There was one exception to this by someone wonderful who used to work at Pct. 4. This person contact us every anniversary of Scott's death and his burial (2-23-04).

Please help us round up every ANYand ALL evidence any 0f you may have and forward it to the proper authorities. Just a tip, do not give your evidence to anyone at Pct. 4. has a way of disappearing there, Take it to a District Attorney you can trust. Let them do their jobs.

Please leave your own entries or comments as well. Tanner loves to see that we are getting some support, but he really misses his friends at Pct.4. No matter what, Tanner lost his dad and the Constable is supporting the cop killer instead of his own officer.

God bless each and every one of you and stay safe on the roads,

Wrong date

I can't believe it. The five year anniversary is February 19, 2009. Sorry for the bad typing.


Upcoming Anniversary

February 19, 2005, is the five year anniversary of Scott's murder. As the anniversary approaches, many emotions are going through our family right now. It's hard to believe it's been five years since Scott was killed, and things have changed so much...some by choice, some by not.

Once again I am begging for your help in helping us get justice for Scott. His killer is not the only person that needs to be held accountable for things that have happened relating to his murder. If you know someone who can help us, I am begging you please to pass this blog along to them. We need every bit of help we can get. I know it is not going to happen overnight.

As impatient as I sound, the people who need to be investigated WILL be investigated eventually. I will keep after this until we have received the justice we so desire. No I will not go away, shut up or quit. I am here for the long haul.

Thanks again for all your help.

Why Now?

One of the questions I have been asked over and over again is why I have waiting until now to do something about Ron Hickman. First and foremost, I never wanted my late husband to be used as political mud to sling from one candidate to another. I'm not saying it would have, but it might have and that was not a chance I was willing to take. This is about Scott's life and his devotion to community service, and Ron Hickman's crappy treatment of our family since Scott was killed. Once again, Ron Hickman has NEVER called to check on Tanner. Not once in five years. Now that Tanner has read the letter (had no choice thanks to Ron Hickman), he wants nothing to do with the man other than to see justice served on him, and that includes going before a grand jury to answer why he used his OFFICIAL CAPACITY to influence the parole board. Tanner is now 14 years old and wiser than most 50 year olds because of all he has been through.

I also tried to report Scott's killer to his parole officer once I had a copy of his sworn testimony stating he has drank since being released from prison. It never occurred to me to ask my attorney to ask him this question. We just assumed he was following his probation rules and would never admit anything if he wasn't. Well, there were some smart jurors who wanted to know, and he testified under oath that he had been drinking since being released from prison. THAT IS A VIOLATION! When I reported it to his parole officer, I was treated like the criminal and told that they would have to catch him violating his parole and it was basically none of my business. EXCUSE ME???? I'm the victim of the crime. It is my business, and according to their own rules they are required to start an investigation. And no, they don't have to "catch him". Someone can phone in a tip or whatever. I would say that testifying under oath that you had violated your parole was sufficient enough. Unfortunately, I cannot get anyone from the parole department to start an investigation.

What? Constable Hickman cracking down on drunk drivers?

Am I crazy or what? No offense to the officers doing a great job getting drunk drivers off the road, but Ron Hickman in charge of such action? He wrote a letter to the parole board to get the drunk driver (Donald Fincher, Jr.) who killed my late husband (Deputy Constable Scott Claborn) out of prison. There is even a rumor circulating that he is trying to get a pardon from the governor for this drunk driver. I'm going to get very upset if I find out that is not a rumor but actually true. Here is the link to the Houston Chronicle article about this:

If you are as outraged about this as I am, then do something about it. Sometimes the right thing to do is not the easiest, but it has to be done.

Magnolia Tribune article

Thank you to the Magnolia Tribune for writing such a wonderful article. However, I should point out that Constable Hickman once again lied. At no time was I in any discussions with him and the Finchers to start a public awareness program. In fact, the Constable does not talk to me at all. Another case in point...he claims he willingly helped us in all our lawsuits. Bullshit! He had to be subpoened in both the lawsuits and forced to testify. In fact, one of the two lawsuits was Harris County suing me because they claimed Scott did not die in the line of duty!! The other lawsuit, the wrongful death lawsuit, finally ended in May 2008, and that is when all of this garbage came out. In addition, we have yet to see one penny of the judgment we received against Donald Lee Fincher, Jr.

Please help us

For anyone just following this blog and not commenting, PLEASE post your opinions. Constable Ron Hickman started this fight the day he used his office to help Scott's killer. All I am doing is cleaning up the mess and making sure justice is done. As of today, Ron Hickman is under investigation by the Attorney General's office and the Harris County DA's office (or so I'm told). I'm hoping that he still doesn't have connections in the DA's office to get him out of trouble. Also, there are several news agencies out there compiling their own investigations. This is not going to go away this time. I WILL NOT SHUT UP UNTIL JUSTICE IS DONE. And for all of you good Pct. 4 deputies and employees...I stand behind you 100%. It is only your management that I have a problem with. There are some very good employees who are being bad mouthed, but I know you are good employees. Sometimes doing the right thing isn't the easiest thing. I'd rather be able to work my butt off for the right thing so I can look at myself in the mirror everyday.

I think the letter says it all!

My name is Paula Claborn Henderson, and I am the widow of Deputy Constable Frank Scott Claborn (EOW 2-19-04). I found out in May 2008 that rather than support my late husband, Constable Hickman's own deputy, he chose to write a letter to the parole board on his killer's behalf. Sickening, isn't it? Not only that, but he is also the campaign treasurer of Patricia Fincher Harless. Scott's killer was Donald Lee Fincher, Jr. Notice any similarities? When interviewed by Channel 2 News in Houston, the assistant DA said that Constable Hickman supported Scott's killer getting probation!!!!!! I need help desperately. I made a promise to my son that I would seek justice for his father, and that includes everyone who worked behind the scenes to sabotage the justice system. If you know anything at all about this situation, please feel free to post it on this blog. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, then please contact the DA's office directly. Thank you so much for anything you can do to help. I promise you will remain anonymous.
