On the Beat 

Before he started telling jokes for a living, Juston McKinney was a cop. His duties included schooling area kids on the dangers of gangs. “The program started in L.A., and I had to teach the exact same lesson plan up in the woods in Maine,” he recalls. “The kids didn’t even know what a gang was. The next day, they’re all forming gangs.” Growing up, McKinney was familiar with local law enforcement; his father continually ran into trouble. “I’d be watching CHiPs, and the real police would pull up,” he says. “I’d hear sirens on TV, and I’d look outside, and the real cops were arresting my dad.”
