We're practically on the same side, so I'm just adding in my own two cents on these issues.
The very idea of "police" is an illusion created by government. Police organizations have been used as tools of control throughout history, not as means of crime prevention. Every person should be responsible for the safety of themselves and their loved ones. In a stateless society, people would take the responsibility of self-defense much more seriously, and crime would fall as a consequence. Criminals look for victims, not challenges. Of course private security would be a part of it, but it already is.
Courts are equally an illusion. The root word of arbitration and arbitrary are the same, and I believe this puts the courts into perspective.
arbitration - Law, the hearing and determination of a dispute, esp an industrial dispute, by an impartial referee selected or agreed upon by the parties concerned
arbitrary - Determined by chance, whim, or impulse, and not by necessity, reason, or principle
I would have to write a detailed essay to even come close to explaining why a judicial system is completely irrelevant and counter-intuitive to a free society.
For an anarchic society, a standing military would be pointless. Expeditionary war for such a society would not exist. If threatened with invasion, voluntary, militant resistance would be a natural result.
