Editor’s note: Videos contain profanity.
Rioters in Washington, DC, threw projectiles at police and shouted profanities at them during the second night of violence prompted by the death of a black man who crashed his moped while being chased by police.
One woman can be heard shouting at police, “I wish hate for all of y’all. I hate all of you mothersf***ers. Eat a d**k and die! I hope all of your mothers and fathers f**king have strokes in their sleep.”
The group of rioters then began throwing fireworks at officers.

At least one firework exploded and injured some of the officers nearby.
“Holy s**t! That f**ked up a cop,” one person can be heard saying after the firework explodes.
Another video shows a group of rioters trying to break into the 4th District police station.

Police eventually used spray and flash bangs to force rioters back, but not before being attacked with rocks and bricks, according to NBC Washington.
