Why do relatives ALWAYS put their blinders on when family members commit crimes?

I understand that it's important to support a loved one during times of trouble, but it seems like regardless of the situation (Oscar Pistorius, Jerry Sandusky, and even in our own families), people are quick to give their relatives a pass. You could gather a 100 people in the room and they'd all deny having family members who are capable of child molestation or murder, yet we all have relatives who have probably committed some pretty heinous acts. Hell, some of you are probably ignoring warning signs this very moment, all because you don't want to ruin the illusion about someone you love/respect. Having fucked up relatives isn't an indictment on anyone other than the perpetrator, yet people feel the need to shield their loved ones from any sort of responsibility. Why?
