They are evil as they commited a crime against Notch the creator and made him leave development because of his grief of the crime. Back then they were know as Octopi or octopuses. They changed their name to squids so people would think they vanished. And that is why they are evil. I think they are also lonely as the only water mobs and they don't deserve to live through the pain of loneliness. That is why I kill them.
And the crime was?

Let go your earthly tether. Enter the void. Empty and become wind.
Squids are amazing!!!
They just, bob about... and stuff.. so peacefully....
I made a massive pool once for them to have funz in. But they never came! The one who not must be named (aka Skydomort) must of killed them!!!
I have no idea how you could possibly believe that villager 'evolved' from squid. First off, there's no proof that the Darwinian evolution theory exists within the minecraft universe. Secondly, they do not possess any form of similarity. Their heads are different sizes, and as for the shape, what isn't shaped as a block!? You might as well say that villagers evolved from cobblestone!
In a world where there are four legged green things and floating heads with blazing sticks around them in the hell, i see no problem on thinking they evolved from Squids, you can say we evolved from Pigs in Minecraft if you want, no problem! Also, they don't attack you, unless you're dumb enough to drown yourself to see one... Ever heard of Ladders? they provide you enough air for an eternity as long they're underwater, so you can appreciate the peacefull thing that the Squid is! If they were Krakens, all right, they want to eat us and we know it, but we're talking about harmless and cute Squids! What can they do? Scare you out? Invading your underwater house and looting everything? Eat your head? Come on, they are harmless! They're not any kind of Mermaid to lure you into deep water, first of all that you only follow the Squids if you want to, and second, all animals (Or most) have their defenses, Skeletons have Bows, Blazes have Fireballs, you can craft Weapons and Armor, so we can say that Squids using water as a defense form is perfectly normal, it is your idea to attack them in first place it isn't? It is not fair to just kill them freely, they have defenses as we do!
Squids watch... and they wait. They are convinced that it's just a matter of time before calimari is introduced to the game and their peaceful existance will be forever compromised. Thousands... nay, millions of Steves, no longer satisfied with steak and chops and bread. Hungering for a newer, better culinary experience. They know. They see the new improvement to the Respiration enchantment as the next step. Insidious baby-steps toward their ultimate persecution. And why shouldn't they fear? They see us slaughtering the other mobs for their meat and by-products. They see the effort expended to build bigger and better automated killing and harvesting machines. They've seen their brethren dragged from the safety of the sea, left to gasp for breath in the merciless sun if for no other reason than our twisted enjoyment of their suffering... and maybe an ink sac or two. So they watch... and they wait... and they plan. The day will come when you are blissfully floating in your little wooden boat and the suckered tentacles will come, and they will pull you into the sea. And they may gaze upon you for a moment with their dinner-plate sized eye... perhaps they want to see the fear in your eyes before they tear you asunder with their razor sharp beak. And who among us could blame them? The signs are there for them to see and they know the nature of Steve. And so they watch... and they wait.
