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.”
