Dan Aykroyd helps out Hinds Co. Sheriff's Dept.

Dan Aykroyd till now has signed off an estimated 775,000 autographs but this recent one we are going to talk about has inked the deal on a new, police-equipped Dodge Charger that the popular actor, a Hinds County reserve deputy since January, bought and donated to the Hinds County Sheriff's Department. Dan has always been loved for the life he brought into our all time favorites including Saturday Night Live," "Ghostbusters" and "The Blues Brothers." Though the addition of his celebrity-self was more than enough for the encouragement but he had to do something extraordinary; he lent his checkbook to help the department.

He was also looking forward to his Jackson weekend which was like a boost to the Medgar Evers Homecoming activities while he also had to tend to some movie work in Mississippi. The 2014 Dodge Charger with a police package is known to feature an emblem which merges conic images from two of Aykroyd's best-loved films: support for bluesmen but ghosts beware. Dan Aykroyd said that "That's two of my favorite things right there.”

The negotiation took place for a while inside after which Dan pulled out a check and signed the contract on the back of the nearest deputy for support. "All those movies I did, all those fine television shows and films and records, I didn't do them alone. It always is collaboration and teamwork," Aykroyd said. "If the police and the community do not work together ... there's no point in having a police force.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
