My mother Cathy was a domestic violence victim. Nearly 10 years ago I watched as my father, Mike Rinder, viciously assaulted her right in front of me. My Mom had to undergo surgery and has spent countless hours in physical therapy. Her orthopedic surgeon has told her she will never regain full use of her arm. She is condemned to a life of pain.
Like too many domestic abusers, my father blames the victim. Instead of being held accountable for what he did, Mike Rinder is handsomely rewarded by a Walt Disney-owned company, A & E. This isn’t the justice my Mom or any victim of domestic violence deserves.
Please join me in raising awareness for victims of domestic abuse at Justice4mom.org. #FireMikeRinder. Together our voices can raise awareness of domestic abuse, change public attitudes toward men who assault their wives and shine a light on those who support and enable them.
We must stop rewarding those who abuse women.
Thank you for your support.
