Er...if the Renegades disqualify anyone with a criminal ancestor in the last 400 years, who could possibly qualify? The chances of all 20,000 or so of your ancestors having no criminal record is pretty much zero. Hell, given the current felony conviction rate in the US, any 25th-century American will have a few hundred convicted felons among their ancestors from the 21st century alone.

And while I'm snarking, why would a bunch of cops call themselves the "Renegades?" That's like, even eviller than "Rogues."

I would mention Australia or something but I don't want to get buried under a pile of outraged Aussies.

Its the reason you never see Batman there; an entire country that would piss their pants if he even flew in their airspace.

Read this yesterday:

"So my friend is taking a vacay in Australia, and he arrives at customs....

Aussie customs official: Do you have a criminal record?
Friend: Wha...? I thought you didn't need one anymore."

One of my best boys is an Aussie so it's all in fun, haha.

Piss ourselves from laughter, perhaps - bats don't rate high on the list of scary things in Australia (even for the cowardly and superstitious lot) unless you're a fruit farmer, as fruit bats are our most well known bat here. Now if he was Blue-Ringed-Octopusman or Funnel-Web-Spiderman or Brown-Snakeman, we might start quaking...

(Also, most of us got over the convict thing a long time ago - the majority of us look with amused pity on people who try to use that to insult us. It was 200 years ago guys, get a new insult.)

Well to be fair - compared to Drop Bears, nothing seems scary anymore.

Have you read about Australia? With the wildlife alone it's like living in a supervillain lair already. What's Batman going to do to them that they're not already risk of?

Nah, it'd be hard to be offended when we take pride in our convict heritage.

Now, if you said we were all secretly Kiwis...

Maybe it has to be for a serious crime?

Comic writers do tend to forget that people have more than two ancestors each generation... (see: The Waynes).

Then what sort of standard is there for a major crime versus a minor offence? Using my own country's penal code: getting into an affray would be serious already.

I also wonder how many generations back they count. I bet Y-chromosomal Adam beat the crap out of some his peers back in the day. =P

Presumably ones they consider serious. Murder is the only one we know definitely qualifies.
