It's definitely not perfect. Just look at all the lynchings that took
place in the south after the civil war - nearly always of innocent
black men (although James would, ridiculously, argue otherwise).

It seems to me that "Frontier Justice" has historically been
justice at the whim of a whipped up mob. 

Now - does that make it any worse than the absurdly inhumane
mass incarceration and extrajudicial killings practiced by
state sponsored pigs all over the country today? Obviously, no ;)

I don't have a precise idea of how "justice" in an anarchist 
society would work, but it seems to me that there are a couple 
of things that are obvious. You have a right to protect your
person and and anyone else actively under attack, with whatever
force necessary.  Beyond that, I think total shunning of a bad actor
(refusing to participate in trade or any other aspect of the 
local society) might be the best way to get rid of them. Of course,
as with anything else, this system is also imperfect ;)
