The Game and his son have raised almost $60,000 for a police officer who's 'going the extra mile'


After leading a peaceful march with Snoop Dogg to the LAPD headquarters, The Game is continuing to play an active part in the Black Lives Matter struggle - this time by shining a light on a police officer who "is going the extra mile for a lot of young African American children".

The Compton native's son, Harlem, decided to set up a Go Fund Me page for Tommy Norman, an officer in Little Rock, Arkansas, after finding his Instagram page and seeing all he does for the community he works in.

"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," wrote The Game.

Harlem hopes the money "will be used to help Officer Norman continue his mission strengthening the community", as well as on "snacks, drinks, and toys for him to keep his trunk stocked for the kids". The $50,000 goal has already been smashed.

Since the fundraiser was started, Officer Norman has been hot news in America, featuring on a number of shows to talk about the importance of community policing - the evidence of which can be seen here, with 21-year-old Leonte affirming that he feels safe around the police in his neighbourhood, something not many young black men are able to say.

Props to The Game and his son for bringing Officer Norman to people's attention, and if you'd like to donate you can do so here.
