Never in my life thought I'd be raising money on behalf of a police officer…… Until my son @hvrlemtaylor made me aware of the amazing things @tnorman23 has done in the Little Rock, Arkansas neighborhoods he polices……. People will say, "fuck him" "he's a pig" etc….. & that does what ??? Pour more fuel into an already HATE filled world…. Tommy Norman is not like other police, in fact… Other police around the world should take his initiative & learn from so that the existing problem between us & law enforcement can better itself before our children are subjected to the same situation… I love my kids. Their futures are very important to me. I'm sure everyone reading this loves their children & the children of this world as much as I love mine. Well guess what, I love yours too.. just as @tnorman23 loves all the children he encounters daily.. & because of that love, he's recognized & "WE" as a collective group have been able to raise 50k in just 24 hours to help him get his foundation off the ground as well as continue to stock his trunk with school supplies from @Sprayground, toys & food for the children he encounters on a daily basis. THANK ALL 2,594 of you SOOOO MUCH for CLICKING THE LINK IN MY BIO "WE" did that together & I am not ashamed to use my platform, voice or resources to help another good soul. & to be brutally honest… FUCK YOU if you don't like it… I'm teaching my children & those who are watching to be better than we are as a nation have been…. Yea, I'm a gang member, yea I smoke weed… Yea, I've rapped about violence but does that disable me from being a caring individual ? Absolutely NOT !!! I've done so much for my community & others worldwide that I cannot & will not be judged by another flawed human being. The real question is: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION ??? @TNorman23 you're amazing…. Keep on keepin on brotha !!! & I couldn't help but notice you a had BLACK WIFE… Awwwww shit, gone wit yo bad self #TheRobinHoodProject #HUNT #StayCommitted #AGoodSonForAGoodCop #ThankYou [This was the 1st but not the last fundraiser me & @therobinhoodproject will be doing]
Following The Game’s peaceful rally with Snoop Dogg in Los Angeles last week, the rapper’s 13-year-old son, Harlem Taylor, did his part to bring people and police together by launching a GoFundMe campaign for Arkansas’ “Good Cop” Officer Tommy Norman.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Officer Norman, he has been the talk of social media for his active work in the black community in Little Rock, Ark. On his Instagram account, you can see him interacting with the neighborhood children and offering his thoughts on effectively policing in urban communities.
According to The Game, his son saw Officer Norman’s IG page and wanted to do more to support his activism in the community. In just over a 24-hour period, the crowd-funding campaign has raised over $60,000 in monetary donations, which surpasses the original $50,000 goal.
“Not only am I proud of my son for taking initiative, I’m thankful that I’ve raised him with such a pure heart regardless of the negativities he’s seen me overcome,” said The Game of his son’s achievement.
All of the proceeds will be transferred to the Game’s charity organization The Robin Hood Project, which will then go directly to Officer Norman. “It takes a village to raise a child” & this good cop is going the extra mile for a lot of young African American children,” said The Game.
