stateless witchhunts

If you read about the history of capitalist democracy you can see that even they put safeguards in place to ensure against people being falsely accused, eg. in the manner of the kind of witchhunt Arthur Miller depicted in The Crucible (not that it helps much to the extent that laws are made by and for the rich).

When confronted with disputes, what's to stop anarchist societies from degenerating into witchhunts without safeguards comparable to or better than those of the capitalist legal system, eg. burden of proof on the prosecution, habeus corpus, etc?

If this is an issue then are there not standards of proof for dispute resolution under conditions of anarchy at least comparable - if not vastly superior - to those of bourgeois democracy?
