I have had a lot of time to review the 38 years I knew and was married to Mike Rinder. Numerous instances certainly stand out in retrospect that made me realize that the devious individual that is Mike Rinder today is actually the way Mike always was—only now fully unrestrained.
Mike Rinder’s modus operandi was and is to do whatever he wants, regardless of any morals or even a care for another human being, as long as he can get what he wants for no work and for the least effort, irrespective of any harm to others.
In 2010 my daughter Taryn. Mike’s brother Andrew and I went to Florida in an attempt to get in communication with Mike and help him come to his senses. Mike abandoned us and his whole family in June 2007 and has never attempted to reconcile. Rather, he turned on us and everything we believe in, our mores, our religion, our allegiances, our friends and even his own mother!
When we went to see Mike, he suddenly and forcefully physically attacked me, damaging my arm (requiring care from paramedics) and causing long-term damage to my shoulder which he wrenched. My shoulder never mended and I had to receive surgery to reconstruct the shoulder bones.
I had no idea at the time we met with him that Mike Rinder would ever go so far as to physically attack his own wife. But when he did, at that moment, with his eyes glaring into mine not two inches away, I saw that I was now, in his eyes, an “enemy.” I also saw him twist my intentions in seeing him to justify his vicious actions.
It also became crystal clear that any man who would ever do that to his own wife never really loved her or anyone. Mike’s “handling” was to go to the press and deny he even touched me, despite the physical evidence.
While I may have been blind to it in the past, Mike Rinder’s modus operandi was and is to do whatever he wants, regardless of any morals or even a care for another human being, as long as he can get what he wants for no work and for the least effort, irrespective of any harm to others.
The innocent and unsuspecting people around Mike Rinder do not realize they are in for heartbreak one way or the other. They do not realize the position they are in associating with a bald-faced liar who will manipulate them to get what he wants—even if that means hurting those he claims to love.
