Dickish acts like that oddly humanize and demonize them at the same time. On the one hand, when has an actual revolution not fucked over the little guy? On the other, it's fiction anyway, so what's the point of mindlessly evil acts that seem to be just thrown in there, other than to confirm that Aizen is just a bad guy.
I want to see SS split into two groups: those fighting to keep it the same (Yamamoto leading, of course) and those who are tired of its aforementioned bullshit. Thought, at this point, that is four groups I can think of right away, three if Ichigo+Friends join with the SSReformers. Just about the last thing we need is another story arc. It's at a good ending point with the upcoming Kingdom parts, it shouldn't ruin it by lasting too long. (Now I've jinxed it, though)
