Nothing, they don't really care. What's important to them is to have that shiny badge saying "I am the one who singlehandedly saved our country from chaos - It's me, adore me, vote for me". Reality on the terrain isn't important, more so since actual crime fighting (as opposed to gesture politics) is actually someone else's problem.
