THIS is the shocking moment a Philadelphia "looter" brazenly stole a huge appliance from a store during another night of violence, vandalism, and protests.

A video of the man emerged as a second night of riots and looting erupted in the Pennsylvania city on Tuesday – a day after police fatally shot Walter Wallace Jr.

In the footage, a masked man wearing a red t-shirt can be seen casually wheeling away the appliance, which looks like a washing machine, on a large dolly.

He eyed the camera in an unconcerned way as he strolled away from one of the many ravaged Philadelphia businesses last night.

Twitter user Andy Ngô shared the clip from the Sean Hannity show and claimed that the person pictured was a "looter" as Black Lives Matter protests exploded there.

American flags were torched in New York City last night after the protests spread from Philadelphia, where dumpsters were set on fire, stores were ransacked, and violent clashes between protesters and police ensued.

The White House released a statement in the early hours of Wednesday morning slamming the demonstrations, which erupted after cops fatally shot Wallace, 27, who had mental health issues, and refused to drop his knife.

Kayleigh McEnany's office indicated that the government was getting ready to mobilize and would "never allow mob rule" as the violence continued.

The comment comes after another night of chaos, which saw the riots and looting over his killing spread to New York and Washington DC on Tuesday after raging for a second night in Philly.

A car was filmed ramming into a police barricade last night while cops tried to smash the windows with batons.

The violence intensified as rioters looted stores, set fire to rubbish bins and smashed up cars.

Roughly 500 people gathered at a West Philadelphia park last night, where they chanted and marched through the neighborhood.

Elsewhere, footage showed people ransacking stores on the opposite side of the city from where Wallace was shot.

A little after 8:30pm local time, Philadelphia Police issued a warning.

It stated that a crowd of approximately 1000 was looting business in the area of Castor and Aramingo and to avoid the area.

Harrowing images showed fires in the middle of streets, while a large police presence was required at a Target and Walmart, where windows were smashed and items stolen.

Philadelphia braced itself for another night of violence yesterday as video showed cops running away from demonstrators, who appear to be throwing bottles at them.

More footage which emerged on Tuesday showed rioters hurling trash cans at a line of cops and another that showed looters sifting through trashed stores.

Shocking video footage shows demonstrators hurling garbage and garbage cans at officers in riot gear holding up a line of shields that day.

Another video appears to show a rioter raiding a police vehicle, while more captured footage shows a police vehicle on fire.

Police confirmed that at least 30 officers were injured on Monday night, including one female officer who was hit by a truck and sustained a broken leg.

Rioters looted several stores and at least one restaurant, and police said that more than 30 people were arrested for throwing bricks or rocks at officers or looting.
