Here's Why The Game's Son Started A GoFundMe Page For Police Officer Tommy Norman

"Sometimes it doesn't take much to help those in need."

The Game today (July 10) shared a personal message detailing how during discussions with his son about the past week's events and how they transpired, his oldest son decided he wanted to do something good for a police officer.

As told in the rapper's own words, when his oldest, Harlem, researched a "good cop," he landed on Arkansas Officer Tommy Norman. The two then made the decision to set up a GoFundMe page to help the officer continue to give back to his community in Little Rock.

The Game donated the first thousand dollars to get the charity page started on a strong footing.

"I was touched by how active [Norman] is in the Black community where he polices," The Game wrote in his post. "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..."

The Game then continued on about how while he is capable of donating the full goal amount set up by his son, he didn't want the joy stolen from his son's idea and his "commitment and dedication for something and someone he felt touched by."

"'It takes a village to raise a child,'" the rapper included in his post. "This good cop is going the extra mile for a lot of young African American children... #BlackLivesMatter to more than just #BlackLives #AGoodSonForAGoodCop #StayCommitted."

His son Harlem also posted a message on Instagram promoting the GoFundMe page.

"Thank you dad for donating the 1st $1,000 of your money to my go fund me !!!" he wrote. "I love you & appreciate you so much for helping me start this campaign for officer Tommy Norman !!! He is the best cop out there & people need to know it #AGoodSonForAGoodCop."

At the time of this report, the page has raised over $25,000 towards their newly-extended goal of $50K.
