Pinky, as far as discouraging rape and murder is concerned, anarchism discourages them not through outlawing them but through adopting a system of beliefs which rejects any domination of others. The idea behind is that moral convictions are more likely to make people behave in a particular way than legal prohibitions. If rape/murder occurs in anarchy, it would NOT be dealt with according to pre-determined rules. People involved would decide what the right response should be. Anarchism is all about spontaneity, flexibility, adaptability to circumstances, continuous change, doing what you see is right in the situation.

Although the FAQs are not a particularly good source of information, to answer some of your questions about decision-making in anarchy, you may find helpful section A.2.11 "Why are most anarchists in faviour of direct democracy?" and A.2.12 "Is consensus an alternative to direct democracy" in FAQs.
