Former MPD officer Derek Chauvin — who was recorded kneeling on Floyd's neck for minutes before he died — was arrested and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter on Friday. Three other officers at the scene of the incident have been fired, but many elected officials are calling for more. "It's not enough to fire the officers—they must be held accountable and an investigation into the Minneapolis Police Department's practices must be opened," California Senator Kamala Harris tweeted Thursday. CBS News political unit broadcast associate Aaron Navarro reports that Stacey Abrams looked to the election to hold leaders accountable. "Law enforcement, district attorneys, mayors, attorneys general, judges, legislators and governors must be held responsible—and their actions will be on the ballot in November," she tweeted on Friday.
