More Horrific Details Emerge in the Assault of Christy Mack

**trigger warning**

Another absolutely horrific assault on a woman. I’m sure many of you have heard by now about the brutally violent attack on Christy Mack by her ex boyfriend MMA fighter Jon ‘war machine’ Koppenhaver, from multiple sources including her own account of the abuse posted on twitter. By all accounts he tried to kill her. Well, more horrific details have emerged on the investigation.

“there is nothing in the report that contradicts Mack’s claim that Koppenhaver arrived at her house unannounced and held her hostage while he broke 18 bones in her face with his fists and sawed off her hair with a dull knife. There is nothing that contradicts her claim that she went in and out of consciousness while Koppenhaver looked through her social media profiles on her phone and punched or kicked her every time he found a post he didn’t like. There is nothing that contradicts her claim that she might be dead if she hadn’t escaped to her backyard while Koppenhaver looked for a sharper knife with which to kill her. And there is nothing — absolutely nothing — in the report that could suggest that Mack is at all responsible for the unspeakably horrifying assault she suffered at the hands of a domestic abuser.”

No one does anything to deserve such a beating. Such brutalization. And she is not alone. I’m at a loss for words…
