With the country in conflict over police brutality, The Game’s 13-year-old son, Harlem Taylor has chosen to highlght and uplift officer Tommy Norman, a cop widely celebrated on social media for actually being a part of the community that he patrols.
The officer based in North Little Rock, Arkansas, works in a predominately Black community. His Instagram page is full of heartwarming videos in which he’s seen handing out free food and drink to kids and conversing, playing and dancing with local residents.
Harlem’s GoFundMe campaign has already been a huge success, raising over $45,000 24 hours. The original goal was $10,000, and The Game donated the first $1,000 to his son’s campaign. The money raised will be used to fund Officer Norman’s charitable efforts in his community, including the purchase of snacks, drinks and toys.
Officer Norman is completely shocked and taken aback by the love and support of everyone. Norman took to Instagram to express his humility to Harlem and The Game. “What do I say? What do I do?” Giving of my heart & soul for so many years is just a part of life for me. To grab the worlds attention? No way! A sincere thank you to @losangelesconfidential & his son @hvrlemtaylor for having faith in my mission & dream to change the world!”
Good morning world…… So as I told you yesterday, I had conversations with my oldest son @hvrlemtaylor about good cops & bad ones & he did his research & found officer @tnorman23's page & i was touched by how active he is in the black community where he polices. 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 $10,000 so that officer @tnorman23 can 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 !!!!!!!! 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 over come…… So please CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO & donate anything as small as $1 to the officers mission & together we will help a good soul continue being a super role model for other law enforcement & a life saver for the children of tomorrow…… As soon as the $10,000 goal is reached… The funds will then immediately be transferred from my @therobinhoodproject account by my charity's manager @ilndprncss to officer @tnorman23. "It takes a village to raise a child" & this good cop is going the extra mile for a lot of young African American children… #BlackLivesMatter to more than just #BlackLives #AGoodSonForAGoodCop #StayCommitted [Tag as many people to this post as you can & FOLLOW officer @tnorman23 NOW…..
