The deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and police officers at a Dallas protest last week have inspired many to take action. That includes The Game and his son Harlem, who are raising thousands of dollars for one Arkansas police officer.
“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,” The Game wrote on Instagram. “I was touched by how active he is in the black community where he polices.” Harlem then started his own GoFundMe page to raise money for Little Rock’s Officer Norman so that he can “continuously stuff his trunk with toys, goodies, food & other things to help him continue contributing to the kids and people in Little Rock Arkansas.”
Officer Norman has made a name for himself in his community with his “commitment to change the world” and advocates for people, and especially officers, to take a moment out of each day to do something kind for someone else.
Harlem and The Game are not the only ones who have noticed Officer’s Norman’s efforts in his community. Both T.I. and Young Thug have praised the officer on their own social media accounts. “One of da good ones….@tnorman23 check him out!!! Crooked cops & Cowards take notes!!!!” T.I. wrote while Thugger kept it simple with his post with the caption, “Sent from heaven.”
As Harlem states on the GoFundMe page, “Every police interaction does not have to be a negative one and Officer Norman is changing that one person at a time.” It’s clear Harlem takes after his father who just lead a peaceful rally with Snoop Dogg to the LAPD headquarters last week and even jump started the fundraiser with his own $1,000 donation. We can only hope that more people will follow the example this family is setting. The Game and Harlem have raised over $40,000 out of their $50,000 goal. You can donate to Harlem’s GoFundMe for Officer Norman here.
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
