I`ll attempt to transcribe this cop`s version:

Oh say, can you see, by the dawn`s early light,
What so helli--twilight, at the land`s gleaming mooksright.
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O`er the rampart we watched, were so gallantly streaming.
And the rocket`s red glare, bombs bursting in air,
gave proof through the night that the stars were still there.
Oh say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O`er the land of the brave and the home of the free?

ok, who hired the drunk guy to sing?

seriously, if they had any citeria at all in their decision, they wouldn`t have chosen someone who a) sounds like he has a mouth full of marbles, and b) doesn`t know the freakin` words! shouldn`t thay have verified that beforehand? and the guy himself felt no need to google the lyrics or something? there had to be a more suitable choice. the fact that one guy was about to give a speech is proof that at least one other person in the precinct is definitely not mute and could have stood in. they didn`t even stop the guy when it became apparent that he couldn`t perform the task at hand. i knew the words to that when i was seven. seven! how in the hell did he get through at least 12 years of schooling (and, i`d assume, law enforcement college) without learning the star-fricking-spangled banner?!

what kills me is that he`s standing there so officially while he`s failing. i don`t think he`s realized he`s done anything wrong.

I applaud all his co-workers keeping it together because if I was there, I`d be on the floor dying.
@Duckboy, was it really necessary to post the entire song on here? Really?

If this was the guy they picked to sing the anthem, what does that tell you about the rest of the precinct and their national pride?

P.S. the guy at 0:25 has a dead which I think looks like a deformed grape.

Calm down Duck Boy. We all know that he sung it wrong. Hence the point of the video....the reason we`re all laughing to ourselves....the sarcastic comments....
Wow, did you really type all the lyrics for us to read there? AND YOU ATE THE ENTIRE WHEEL OF CHEESE!?!? Never mind - I`m not even angry, I`m impressed!

Home of the free?!?!

O! say can you see by the dawn`s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight`s last gleaming. Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, O`er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming. And the rockets` red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O`er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep, Where the foe`s haughty host in dread silence reposes, What is that which the breeze, o`er the towering steep, As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses? Now it catches the gleam of the morning`s first beam, In full glory reflected now shines in the stream: `Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O`er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Kids, please learn music, no matter what your career path may be.
Support the arts in school!

at every school I ever went to we had to sing/hear the national anthem everyday before we started class. It seemed annoying at the time, but now I know it was to prevent things like this from happening to me. I don`t know your national anthem, but a definite fail.

"wow...I`m canadian and I know most of the words. This was just bad. Maybe he was just nervous?"

A man at his age has to know this song. We hear it on Independence Day and at many military and police funerals. As a cop, he should definately know the song!

i was sitting there saying "don`t mess up the last word, don`t mess up the last word!" ... he messed up the last word. And then at the end the officer was like "please join me in prayer." Yes, prayer is needed in that situation.

All those cops, all those tazers and some how this idiot was allowed to finish. Look I`m understand not everyone knows the words to the national anthem and I don`t think if you fall into that category it makes you less of an American. However, if you don`t know the words be honest enough to admit it and don`t disrespect like that.

It really is sad that not everyone knows their countries anthem, but it`s all weird at one pointand easy to mix up the words and maybe a few lines. And if he didn`t know it, he shouldn`t have gotten up there to sing it. Even if he did know it he still shouldn`t have sang it lol.

ya wasnt a singer but I doupt anyone got mad or something. It wasnt like he sang the song completely wrong or something. The video did cut stuff just to show ppl reaction it seems like. But I guess someone just trying to make this cop look bad.

It wasnt really that bad, the only reason it sounded all cut up like that was because the camera dude like cut out some of the scenes and the people didnt really seem to mind, some were actually going teary eyed... or were they?? I have respect for you dude, keep on singing your little heart out
