After being forced out of rural Boone County, Barry Manthe relocates his prostitution operation back to within city limits to a major thoroughfare within walking distance to the University of Missouri, Columbia College, and Stephens College. The new location provides ample business to the brothel, but comes with a new set of complications. Behaviors and activities that had previously been acceptable draw the ire of the surrounding educational community and force police to take action.
Police Protected Pimp utilizes interviews, police reports and other evidence to explore the relationship between the Columbia Missouri Police Department and Barry Manthe, a longtime sex trafficker who was granted virtual immunity in exchange for acting as a police informant.
