Man records video of postal worker throwing packages in Fort Worth

FORT WORTH, Texas — At a certain point, Jordan Reddish had seen enough at the US Post Office branch on Las Vegas Trail.

The young father was there on Tuesday afternoon to track down a lost package. That wasn’t what ultimately prompted him to start recording video on his cell phone.

“I thought it was really rude in the first place to being throwing that, so I thought I’m gonna videotape this and it blew up,” said Reddish.
