Eighteen-year-old Ryan Kauten, redneck loser and pedophile (what else do you call an 18-year-old that is in a relationship with a 13-year-old child?), was reportedly recklessly speeding down a residential street in his Confederate flag-bearing pickup truck when he hit 4-year-old Damajae Winn. When Kauten got out of his truck to check on the boy, his passenger and 13-year old girlfriend claims he was beaten up by a crowd of three to ten people.
Claiming nothing but a love of Southern pride, Ryan Kauten allegedly made a habit of flaunting his Confederate flag as he recklessly sped through mostly black neighborhoods.
According to witnesses, Kauten made a habit of driving up and down the street in the predominantly black neighborhood with his truck at high speeds while waving the Confederate flag. A month before this incident, neighborhood kids allegedly stole and burned a Confederate flag taken off the truck, which is what Kautens extremely underage girlfriend thinks really caused the beating.
Interviews of locals also seem to corroborate that Kautens Southern pride grandstanding might have contributed to the attack. One look at Kautens Facebook profile shows multiple pictures of Confederate flags, redneck squad signs, and likes of such classy pages as Redneck Porn, Sons of the Confederate Army, Gas, Grass, or A**, No One Rides For Free, (which makes you wonder which one he was getting from his 13-year-old girlfriend) and multiple gentlemens clubs.
The totally-not-racist couple claims hitting 4-year-old Winn was an accident, and although Kauten may not have aimed or swerved to hit the child, a couple of factors show that it might have at least been negligence. First, there are the witnesses who claim they were yelling at Kauten to slow down, as kids were visibly playing up and down the street.
Stop speeding, stop speeding and kept begging him and begging him and you see what happened, says the young witness.
Theres kids all over the place so he just got up here and he just thought he was going to rev it up and burn down the street and he does this all the time, says Packard.
Second, even if someone questions the witnesses veracity, there is the presence of skid marks that appear to be several feet long at the scene of the incident. Kautens girlfriend claims that the marks were made when they slammed on the breaks after hitting the boy. You dont have to be a physics major to know that means someone is going too fast for a residential street with kids playing on it.
The aftermath: no permanent injuries, no apologies, and no investigation into probable statutory rape.
Thankfully, 4-year-old Damajae Winn seems like he is going to be fine. He was released from the hospital, where he was taken along with Kauten after the incident. Police say they are investigating both the truck plowing into the young child, and the alleged attack by witnesses separately.
What I cant believe isnt being investigated though, is the extreme likelihood of statutory rape. According to Minnesota law:
Third-degree criminal sexual conduct is sexual penetration with (1) a victim under age 13 and an actor no more than 36 months older or (2) a victim age 13 to 16 and an actor more than 24 months older.
Many things on Kautens 13-year-old girlfriends profile (which I am not posting a link to because shes a child) certainly have enough to warrant an investigation. There are plenty of pictures showing physical intimacy between the two in bed together, and they both like multiple Facebook pages about how to have great sex.
Her family says they will be moving as soon as possible to get away from the racial tensions, but what they need to be doing is immediately getting her away from her creepy 18-year-old pedophile of a boyfriend.
