The subject matter is my father, Mike Rinder, and his domestic abuse.

He attacked my mom and he had been married to her for decades and had two children with her. And so, in front of me, one of the children they had together, my father, Mike Rinder—domestically abused my mom. Nothing can be worse than a daughter seeing her father violently attack her mother.

That day in Florida is emblazoned in my mind. I was there with my uncle and my mom and we had gone down there to Florida—I live in California—because we had a really important family matter to take up. And to resolve.

But it was a completely different picture when we got there because he didn't want to see us. He didn't give a hoot about us, what we came to see him about, how we were doing.

First thing after we approached him, he was already holding my mom's arms, keeping her from being able to move, putting a lot of pressure and his weight and his body on her and hurting her. And breaking her shoulder, cracking and fracturing her shoulder. And making her bleed. Then an ambulance was called. Mike Rinder was on a full-on attack against her and really it was very clear he hated her.

So my mom’s standing there. She's just been damaged for life by him and he didn't care about that. He didn’t care about the fact that his daughter, me, is standing there. And he just did this in front of me. He didn’t care about that. What father does that? Mike Rinder does that.

And that’s what my justice4mom is about. It’s about making sure that men that abuse women and are hateful towards their families aren’t supported. And they shouldn’t be supported by any one and certainly not a media outlet and definitely not by any reporter.

So this is Taryn with justice 4mom, an eye witness to Mike Rinder’s domestic violence.

2021—the year to end

any support of Mike Rinder

The International Day of Happiness has, as one of its purposes, to bring about the awareness of happiness as a fundamental human goal. And so, of course, that's what we want: people to be happy.

This is where it ties into my campaign and my justice4mom voice. Because my mom's happiness was absolutely challenged when my father, Mike Rinder, attacked her. It was a domestic violence attack done with a lot of animosities, force, and intention to harm. And that is what Mike Rinder achieved because my mom is crippled for life and her right arm will never, ever, ever, fully heal and never be fully mobile and not in pain for the rest of her days. That's not what I call happiness, and that is the result of Mike Rinder’s attack.

I don't want to see somebody else, like Mike Rinder, who does that to other people. Someone who works to dampen and crush other people’s happiness. I don’t want to see that person supported. So I'm taking the chance on this International Day of Happiness to raise awareness against those who crush others.

Instead, I want everybody to be happy and to spread happiness.

Do things that make people happy and have a happy day.

I wish you a happy week.

And until then, stay happy!

All of my supporters help to give me strength to keep on going with my voice and tell the truth about Mike Rinder. Because my father, Mike Rinder, committed the heinous act of domestic violence against my mother.

It was an afternoon. We had gone—myself, my mom and my uncle—to reconcile our differences, so to speak, with Mike Rinder and to hopefully resolve that. And it didn’t go that way.

Before I could even say or do anything, my father, Mike Rinder, had his hands on my mom and was physically holding her brutally and with rage and hate. A very strong hate. You know when you can feel it. It’s palpable. This was towards my mom. And that really came through. I think it came through in his eyes, in his demeanor and also in his physical attack— that hate was very, very evident. And that hate resulted in her being damaged for life.

Instead of having any sense of ethics or maybe doing the right thing, Mike Rinder just denied it and has harassed my mom, the victim, since that time. And, as a matter of fact, has taken our family and what should be a family unit and trust, and he turned it into lies and hate and fed that into what becomes a propaganda machine. And that then spits out more hate and gets other people to hate, lie, harass me, my brother, my family, my mom, who’s the victim in this case. And that’s the way it goes. And Mike Rinder feeds and fuels this propaganda machine of hate against his family, his very own family.

Ending that support of Mike Rinder is part of getting justice, justice for my mom, justice for women. It is part of making this world a better world and stopping a man who hates, who is violent toward women, who lies.
