What does "botched" mean?

Headlines again today, "Another Botched Execution," this time in Arizona.



How can you call it botched when your intent was to kill a man and make him suffer because he killed people and made people suffer?

Didn't it happen just the way you... just the way we, since you insist in making your citizenry complicit in these state sanctioned killings -- just the way we wanted it to?


Lord, have mercy on us.

Lord, grant Joseph Rudolph Wood II peace.

Lord, grant his victims peace.

Lord, grant their families peace.

But again, Lord, have mercy on us.
