The thing with Angel's soul though is that it can be removed and when that happens Angel turns into Angelus and "takes gleeful pleasure in murdering people". Whilst a soul and the chip are two different things, they're still basically preventing Angel and Spike acting on their nature. The whole "he has a soul" excuse doesn't wipe away all the things that Spike and Angel did in their past.He is a serial killer who takes gleeful pleasure in murdering people and unlike Angel has not got the one thing that changes this enough for it to be OK. The chip is not a soul.
