With all the tension taking place across the country at the moment over police brutality and violence against law enforcement, The Game and his son are looking to help a cop in Arkansas that is working to improve relations between his department and the community he serves.
Officer Tommy Norman has become a favorite online because of his mission of working with local residents. His Facebook page states, “I’m a police officer in NLR Arkansas who’s committed to changing the world!”
Norman’s call for positive community policing struck a nerve with Game and his son Harlem. The Compton rapper explained his decision to help Harlem start a GoFundMe page for Officer Norman.
“I had conversations with my oldest son [Harlem] about good cops and bad ones and he did his research and found officer [Norman’s] page,” wrote Game on Instagram. “I was touched by how active he is in the black community where he polices.”
He added, “[Harlem] developed a #GoFundMe to try and raise $50,000 and in 5 hours were over 1/2 way there…. so that officer [Norman] can continuously stuff his trunk with toys, goodies, food and other things to help him continue contributing to the kids and people in Little Rock Arkansas.”
As of press time, the crowdsourcing effort has raised over $40,000. The Game has even given $1,000 to the cause. Funds can be donated to the “A Good Son For A Good Cop” campaign at GoFundMe.
This is what a good cop looks like. Before you judge, look at his page & what he is doing to make his daily interactions with our youth more positive & effective in the community he polices….. @tnorman23 is someone to FOLLOW !!! #HUNT #HATEUSNOTTODAY #HUNTUSNOTTODAY

My son said, how does he help all of these kids & stuff, is he rich ??? I said I don’t know if he’s rich but sometimes it doesn’t take much to help those in need son…… Being that my son is on vacation with his mother visiting relatives in Atlanta, Arkansas & Louisiana he wanted to do something for officer @tnorman23 in Little Rock so he delevoped a #GoFundMe to try & raise $50,000 & in 5 hours were over 1/2 way there…. so that officer @tnorman23 can continuously stuff his trunk with toys, goodies, food & other things to help him continue contributing to the kids & people in Little Rock Arkansas….. (& BEFORE SOMEONE NEGATIVE PUTS IT IN THE COMMENTS BELOW, YES I COULD’VE GIVEN THE 10K MYSELF BUT THAT WOULDVE STOLEN THE JOY OUT OF MY SONS IDEA & HIS COMMITMENT & DEDICATION FOR SOMETHING & SOMEONE HE FELT TOUCHED BY). But as I type, I AM GOING TO DONATE THE 1st $1,000 !!!!!!!!
