Is embezzlement with the express intention of restitution justifiable when it’s the only way to afford an actual sure-thing investment?

If there isn’t time for a bank loan and the “victim” is too stupid to just lend you the money?

    It's illegal no matter which way you slice it.    

    Are you trying to ask if there are moral justifications for breaking the law?   If yes, not in the circumstances you describe.

    That's what Jon Corzine did, and what Obama's DoJ allowed him to get away with.

    Never justifiable to steal from someone.  What makes you think you're entitled to help yourself to property of others, for whatever reason?

    Embezzlement is still embezzlement! There is no such thing as being justified because you intend to make restitution because you know in advance that you're going to be in prison for embezzlement therefore there is no chance for a monetary restitution you know that the state is going to seize any money that you make from the deal because it was made by embezzlement what you're counting on is that you don't get caught. And maybe have a chance I'm putting the money back before criminal charges put you in prison.

    LOL ... which is what the judge will say when you lay out that defense in a court room.  Stealing (embezzlement) is not okay, even for a sure-thing investment.
