The case files are piling up – young black men killed by white police officers who later go uncharged – as are questions about what the U.S. government will do about it.On Wednesday, after a grand jury said it would not indict a white New York cop for choking 43-year-old father of six Garner to death during an arrest, the top U.S. law enforcement official announced a federal civil rights investigation of the case.Holder has opened similar probes of possible civil rights violations in the death of Brown, who was shot dead by a white police officer in August in Ferguson, Missouri, and in the case of Rice in Cleveland.In Ferguson, when a grand jury announced it had decided against indicting white officer Darren Wilson, and riots broke out, Holder quickly insisted that a federal investigation of the case and of the Ferguson police department in general was already underway.
