Cameras captured L.A. Rams head coach Sean McVay when he watched the Jacob Blake police shooting for the first time ... and his reaction is emotional.
"Are you f*cking kidding me?" McVay says in shock ... "What the f*ck is wrong with people?!"
The moment played out in the opening scene of Tuesday's episode of the HBO docu-series "Hard Knocks," which follows the Rams through training camp.

In this powerful scene, Artis Twyman -- the Rams' Director of Communications -- brings the video to McVay because he thinks it's important for the head coach to see.
"His kids are in the back," Twyman explains while showing McVay the August 23 incident which took place in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
McVay, astonished, says to Twyman -- "That is awful. That makes me sick."
McVay discussed the possibility of canceling practice the next day in the wake of the shooting ... but ultimately held a normal practice.
The team did hold a team meeting to discuss the shooting.
Of course, many NFL teams did cancel their scheduled workouts so players could take action after the shooting ... including the Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers and more.
The L.A. Chargers -- also featured on "Hard Knocks" -- canceled a scrimmage after the shooting and the announcement from head coach Anthony Lynn was also featured on the show.
"We're not going to scrimmage today," Lynn said. "This football team is committed to fighting for a championship and social justice."
