Explain the execution-of-public-duty defense. When and by whom might such a defense be used?

Applying Florida’s stand-your-ground law, would the defendants in this case be criminally liable for murder? D. Edley, a healthy 40-year-old man, shot and killed a 30-year-old man named Vic Tim with a handgun lawfully possessed. Vic Tim was pushing a shopping cart full of empty bottles and cans on a public street when killed. Bulked up after years of weight training while in prison, Vic was muscular and imposing.

He approached Edley on a crowded street, both hands on the cart, pushed Edley with the cart against a building, and said to him, “Kiss me or I will kill you.” Edley shook his head no and Tim responded by growling and pushing the cart harder against his body. Edley shot and killed him.
