What is the point of putting up these photos but hiding their faces?

The point is because the majority of people that recognise others from footage like this is people that already know them. From there they will mention it to the people involved and that will put pressure on the suspects to hand themselves in or at least subside their behaviour.
To put it simply, pictures and video like this aren’t for the random person reading this article, they are for the friends and family that know the suspects.
