Tort claims can be filed against any agency, if that's what you mean.

They will always deny you at first. But if they don't do anything about the filing of a tort claim.
Then you turn to the Attorney General of that state, then you go to the "Federales" and if it's a good case. ......
They are suppose to enforce the violation of that persons Civil Rights.

That's quite a question. the Act applies to federal agents. it is a federal not state law. it allows suits against federal agents and is a limited waiver of sovereign immunity by the federal government.

The former is the act under which you pursue a monetary claim for physical injuries or propery damage against the United States government caused by the negligence of a Federal employee.

The latter applies to intentional deprivation of civil rights -- not just physical injury -- by any government employee (including state & local) or agent or those acting in concert with them, and its remedies include monetary damages and injunctive relief, and attorney fees.
