Perhaps the anarchy principle is not compatible with making such a choice for another person (choosing one to die). If, for instance, there's someone attacking people, they will organize and defend themselves. It will be up to the attacker to recognize his mistakes. People can try to talk to him and help him solve whatever is driving his anger.

But I couldn't think of a way to close the loop of this problem. The attacker could be a little mentally ill and continue attempting to harm people, no matter what is said. I don't know everything, but applying raw anarchist views to the matter gives us a system like I described.

EDIT: Creating a justice system doesn't seem right, as it would open ways for corruption and manipulation of rules. Rules in general are a bad thing to have in an anarchist society. It must come from the people, naturally. If not, something could be wrong there.
