I am a postal worker in Ma who was secretly video audio

I am a postal worker in Ma who was secretly video audio taped swearing after I hurt myself in the truck. I tossed the package over the railing in anger and the customer sent the video with audio to the post office and I am now suspended and fighting for my job. The customer then posted the video with the incident and swearing online and over the local news station. The wife of this family then stated on tv that mail was "missing" on several occasions and past packages were damaged and she had made multiple complaints to the Post office. none of these allegations are true. I have never received notice of previous complaints nor have I ever stolen anything. I feel like she illegaly audio taped me and defamed me on television. Do I have any right to sue?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: Massachusetts. I don't know. It was a postal vehicle but I hurt myself (minor) when the package dropped on my leg in the truck. I started swearing due to pain. I thought I was alone and was unaware of the cameraJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: The post office has suspended me and a grievance by the union has been filed but I have not had contact with a union lawyer yet. Also due to the tv segment and this couple's accusations the situation has increased my difficulty in resolving this.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I feel that this couple's accusations on tv and online have painted a target on my back. Even if I am reinstated I have been portrayed as something I am not. My other customers will be wary and some may try to make additional complaints for profit. I am a 20 year carrier and this is the first issue I have had and I need some advice. Thank you

I am from Louisiana. My wife and I were shopping in Walmart

I am from Louisiana. My wife and I were shopping in Walmart and we paid for our items at the self checkout. The cashier manning the self check out even helped us with some of our items because it was slow. We used the Walmart Pay app which is a digital payment and you get a digital reciept a few minutes later. As we were leaving the greeter asked to see our reciept. I told her it was on the app and continued.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: She then told my wife that she had to see the reciept. My wife told her that it was digital and that we couldn't provide one. The greeter then turned to some plane clothed loss prevention person and told them that we were "walking out with merchandise" this man approached me aggressivly and to be honest scared me because he never identified himself. i thought this large man was about to attack me. he told me that i had to go back in the store. I told him I wasn't. He said he was going to call the cops I told him he could I then proceeded to my car. While I'm loading my groceries he read my license into the phone as if he was on the phone with the police. Not sure if he actually called.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: My wife stayed at the door because it was raining. By this time quite a few people were staring. My wife told the greeter that she didn't appreciate what she was insinuating. The lady said "I don't appreciate what you're insinuating either"JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My wife then said "What?" and the lady said "You know what you're doing..." she pointed at my wife and said "you know". This was in front of people.
