Unjust laws should not exist or be enforced.
Fair enough; but who do you propose should enforce the just laws?
I don't see anyone saying, "It is definitionally impossible to be a good person enforcing any hypothetical set of rules you could possibly imagine."
Having a functional society requires rules; and for those rules to work there needs to be someone with the authority and ability to enforce them.
As for how (just) laws should be enforced, I've gotta believe that question is somewhat rhetorical on your part, or that you've got a piss-poor memory, because this thread has been here longer than you have and I'm pretty sure that's been discussed repeatedly every other time someone before you has asked "well who's going to show up and
shoot someone~prevent crime~ if not for the police?!?".
It's been discussed, sure; but frankly nobody has ever come up with a reasonable answer that actually negates the need for police, or offers an actual, workable replacement.
