When Photoshopping Goes Wrong

The Post-Gazette has a story on their front page today about some guy that got beat up.  The particulars aren't really important.  The dude got beat up, and that sucks.
The victim's mother released this photo, taken at the hospital, showing his injuries immediately after the beating.
There's no way this is a genuine picture.
If you think it is, just take a step back and try to imagine seeing this face walking down the street to the hospital.
Ain't happening.
Compare this to a picture of him when he's recovered:
Maybe we're wrong.
In which case, who cares.
This is all we have going for us right now.
