Hi everybody. It’s Taryn with justice4mom. I’m here today with my mom, Cathy. And I’m going to be doing a series of ten videos. And the reason why I want to do ten videos is because I want to highlight ten things that a woman should never have to go through. And the way I made the list of these ten things was the ten things that my mom had to go through after suffering domestic violence at the hands of my father, Mike Rinder.

And the first subject we’re going to take up – for this series of videos – is the subject of violence. So that’s number 1.

I’ve said this before but it does not go away out of my mind, as a daughter, seeing my father in a rage and wanting to murder my own mother. It was so unreal to me until it happened. It was so unbelievable to see the utter hatred that was coming off of him and his violent assault and attack on my own mother in front of my eyes.

Here is a photo of what he did to her.

And as my other tells, in addition to the physical flesh damage, she also had severe nerve damage both in her shoulder and where nerves were actually cut from the injury sustained.

My father, Mike Rinder, pulled her right shoulder blade all the way down and it won’t ever move back. And the bone that fractured stuck into another bone which immobilized my whole arm on top of that. Her collarbone was dislocated. And there was so much blood. I kept my mom’s shirt because it was her favorite shirt and you can see the blood on it, still. There was so much blood on it we couldn’t get it out. We sent it to a professional drycleaner, and you can still see the blood, all the way down the whole sleeve. That is from Mike Rinder. That is from his violence to a woman. To his ex-wife and to my mom. And that’s, that’s where I draw the line.

And the fact that A&E is supporting him or his cohorts is disgusting. They spread hate. People—stop supporting Mike Rinder and any man that hurts a woman. No woman should ever have to endure violence/hate/pain. Stop supporting men who abuse women.
