I love it. The guy who took half the sign is a fighter against "selfishness" and in favor of "social justice". Sounds a lot better than thief.
Though of course in reality it is worse than that. The whole sign would be taken and 1/10 of it returned while a group of wealthy elites keep 9/10 of the sign and murder those who object to only getting 1/10 of their sign back. Those elites would say they are protecting you from being ripped off by capitalist pigs.
