It is allowed because you are innocent until proven guilty. What if these individuals were not guilty?

Why are they allowed to cover their faces while under custody of the police / prisons? Is this a special favor that the police is doing for their colleagues? In which law book do we have that prisoners can cover their faces while under custody of the police / prisoners? It is a right for the public to see these faces, as this whole system of judiciary and justice system is paid by the public.
