I don't know for what reason the cops cover the face of criminal with black clothes. I think the face of the criminal should show to the public so that we can know who is the person. Can any body have the answer of this? Do you think it is right to hide the face of criminal?

If this criminal has a wife, kids, brother, sister... or any next of kin, do they deserve to be also dragged into the public's eye for being this criminal's family? If you were this criminal's relative, would you like people saying "hey i just saw your brother being taken by cops..." or "hey look at that guy, he is the son of that criminal.." or "here is where the criminal lives, look that's his father.."

off course his family has to face this thing why they didn't give much attention to him and stop him to doing the crime.

Not all criminals share their life of crime with their family. It's not like they discuss this on the dinner table. "Hey kids, you know what I killed someone today. And it's your fault if I get caught and you got yourselves dragged into this because you didn't stop me."
