CFJ: Police Protected Pimp – Ch. 14 “Consent”

Click Here For Police Protected Pimp Full Series

The Columbia Missouri Police Department claimed they allowed Barry Manthe to operate as a pimp for nearly three decades because they saw his dealings as a victim-less crime. The women who worked in his brothels, as well as the people who investigated his ventures, paint a very different picture, in which drug addiction, threat of arrest, and coercion were regularly employed to prevent the women from leaving Barry’s domain. Their statements, as well as the evidence uncovered, show the notorious pimp as a ruthless sex trafficker, per the federal definition of the term.


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.
