Why is Jacob Frey still the mayor of Minneapolis?

According to The Left, "the ultimate bearer of responsibility rests with the person at the top". This standard is applied to those who have a political ideology that differs from theirs. They never apply this standard to themselves.

In the case of George Floyd, his death happened in Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey's backyard. How does he remain in office? He's a Democrat.

Off the top of my head, a few DEM individuals and Leftist organizations, none who have called for Frey to resign: 

Joe Biden, Amy Klobuchar, Ilhan Omar, MN Gov Tim Walz, Hillary Clinton, DNC Chair Tom Perez, Kamela Harris, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Tina Smith (Minnesota's "unknown other senator"), CAIR Minnesota, St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter, the ACLU, Mike Bloomberg, BOB O'Rourke, John Hickenlooper, Eric Swalwell, Kirsten Gillibrand, Julian Castro, Andrew Yang, Tom Steyer, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Al Franken, the SLPC, the NAACP, BLM, Barack and Michelle Obama, Rahm Emanuel, Debbie Dingell, The Minneapolis Star Tribune, former MN Gov Mark Dayton,  MN Rep. Betty McGollum, MN Rep Dean Phillips, MN Rep Angie Craig, MN Rep Collin Peterson.   .

No members of the Minneapolis City Council.

No African American Civic leaders in Minneapolis.

No loudmouth celebrities.

No talking heads on MSM/Liberal Media.

No religious leaders.

No liberal-leaning site, blog or - that I could find - social media (Twitter, FB, etc).

I'm thinking if it had been a Republican mayor, all the above voices would be deafening calls for an immediate resignation.

Would a Republican mayor still be in office? One who ran on a platform of reforming excessive police force, who gave a lot of what appeared good performances (acting) and promising improved results, but who instead failed epically?

Frey failed Minneapolis. In two-plus years in office, he's delivered on none of his promises. He'll walk away from the death of George Floyd blemish-free.
