    LA - Gregory Blackburn for child pornography, Mansfield, 2010

    <snip>

    Investigators suspected child pornography was being downloaded to a computer located at a Mansfield residence owned by Gregory Blackburn (W/M, age 61). Yesterday, troopers arrested Blackburn after executing a search warrant at his home and discovering several hard drives containing thousands of images of child pornography that had been downloaded from the internet. Currently, Blackburn is suspected to be the most prolific trader of child pornography in the state of Louisiana.

    While at the residence, troopers also found a Psilocybin mushroom lab which was fully operational...

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Ahem....there was no mug shot alert on the link above. Brain scrub time. Yucky.

    My first thought is "GREAT!!". Then I was a bit curious as to the 'shroom angle. We know that meth is often found where child porn is made or traded but I had not heard the same about mushrooms. I did a little research and it seems that most people have a decrease in libido with 'shrooms. That's what I thought. So, unless he was doing a good bit of meth and they just didn't find it, I doubt the drugs "drove" the porn. He looks a smidge healthy (only in the physical dept.) to be a meth addict, though, IMO

    My guess is that this guy was growing his crop for cash AND to use to as a commodity in trading. There's no comment about production of porn but I could also see 'shrooms bringing in teen boys. IME, young males seem to use 'shrooms far more often than females.

    I promise there wasn't a mug shot there when I first posted that link, Missizzy!!

    That's the first pic of him I've seen on several articles w/ the LE press release.

    If that's his current mug shot, he doesn't seem too overwhelmed...yuck.

    I believe you. I really do. I've noticed that that's pretty common. I think they push to get the article on the presses and then add the mug shot as it becomes available. I'd swear that that photo was taken in 1984. I guess he doesn't get out much.

    I hate it when they print the mug shots almost big as life. As if I want that guy sitting on my lap!!! No, he doesn't seem too concerned. He also does not look zonked out on mushrooms, IMO. Maybe the fungi were just a home-based business so he could sit in front of his computer all day.

    I don't care what he looks like. He's not sitting in my lap; he's sitting in jail. That's all that matters to me.

    A big hand for LE. I hope he goes away for a very long time.

    One scary looking guy! Like Bessie said, I'm glad he's in jail and not parading as some Santa Claus this season!

    No bond for magic mushroom man.

    Police seized hundreds of tablets made from the 'shrooms.

    Like Bessie and others said we don't care what he looks like, but for the record he uses frost and tip IMO.

    Amen to no bond and thankfully lots of X off the streets.
