On the issue of crime and "law & order," which party should be trusted: Republicans or Democrats?
That was the question C-SPAN posed to viewers recently, receiving more than the network bargained for when a black man who lived in a Democrat-run city for decades made it clear Democrats cannot be trusted to solve crime problems.
Last month, during an open forum on the "Washington Journal," a black man who lived New York for decades called into the show to tell "the truth" about Democrat-run cities.
"I believe the Republicans are better. Why? As a New Yorker that lived in New York from Mayor Koch through Mayor Bloomberg, Democrats and particularly these days, in all honesty as a black man telling the truth, Democratic mayors that is black, whether they male or female; Democratic police commissioners that's black, male or female... Democratic cities, they're run into the ground," the caller said.
The caller added that these leaders are "soft on crime" because they don't "put the hammer down."
"As opposed to the Republicans, who of course are hard on crime, and they are way more supportive of the police," the caller said.
"In my opinion, nationally, city by city, crime-wise, you might want Republicans as your mayors, as your police commissioners whether they’re white or black, whether they [are] male or female because they're more inclined to take crime more seriously and be more inclined to protect and support the victims of crime," he explained.

Earlier in the show, another caller from New York said Republicans have the "moral high ground" on the issue of violent crime.
"In this particular case, the Republican Party has the moral high ground. I say that because recently, you watched, in my opinion, Democratic support for the burning and looting of our cities— calling them 'peaceful protests,' destroying monuments and everything," that caller said.
