Long-time pimp Barry Manthe finds his way to Columbia, Missouri, a liberal college town tucked in the middle of deeply conservative region of the state known as “Little Dixie.” Initially setting up shop in rural Boone County, operating brothels in a heavily competitive market, he is eventually chased into the city limits by sheriff’s deputies fed up with the shameless and exploitative manner in which he runs his operation.
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.
