John Hock, the dethroned King of Stickam and former Myspace heartthrob, used to make scene girls scream and faggots cream.
But look at him NOW:
In keeping with StickyDrama’s longstanding policy of positivity, we will not comment on his appearance or personal life.
JK! He got fat as hell after raping that girl on Stickam.
The problem with you is that you argue over small details while ignoring the bigger picture. You asserted that the efagz post was libelous because it stated that the Arizona police issued a search warrant to you, when in fact they issued a search warrant to your web host. This is a minor detail.
[The problem with the Efagz post is that there are several false “minor details” throughout it, the warrant matter is only one. And these false minor details are repeated over and over in order to paint a darker “bigger picture” of my actions and motivations than is accurate. For example, the post didn’t just state that the search warrant was served upon me instead of my host. Building upon that misinformation, the post’s author wrote over and over that I only sent the video because I was “forced” by the warrant. But that simply isn’t true. I voluntarily sent in that recording, I was in no way forced to send it and the police never asked me to send it. In fact police never even contacted me until weeks after I had sent that video.
Voilà how a “minor detail” libels me: Jessica’s malice towards me drove her to reckless disregard for the truth. There are about four or five other “minor details” in which the post’s author is flat-out wrong. If the author weren’t so eager to attack me, maybe she would have done more research and read the warrant more carefully. Because the only evidence I will use in court to prove libel comes from the search and arrest warrants—two sworn affidavits by a female police detective with over a decade of experience in sex crimes.]
The point is this: you witnessed the assault and screen recorded it. You have all along held the most damning piece of evidence imaginable. If you had wanted to see John Hock arrested, you could have submitted that recording to the police the day it happened. Instead, you blogged about the incident calling a sexual assault victim a “dumb slut” * and acted flippantly about the whole ordeal. The circumstances under which you finally submitted the key piece of evidence in the case are hardly relevant to the fact that you yourself have confirmed that you sent it to the police nearly three months after the incident occurred.
This is why it irks people to see you now repeatedly bragging about how important you are to the case. No one is denying that your recording is the key piece of evidence, but if you knew all along how important it was then you should have sent it to the police right away. You could have been the one to open the case, but you chose to ignore it and sit on the evidence.
[Again, completely incorrect as to my motivations and intentions. The truth is, I had no idea which police department to call. Maybe you spend your time tracking individual e-celebs’ updates, but I don’t. Most of my site’s content is user-submitted; and even in the posts I write, the media content is usually sent to me via email or instant messaging by readers who want to contribute but don’t care to do the actual writing. At the time of the assault, I was purchasing the condo that is now StickyHouse. I was packing up and moving from Midtown Manhattan to Downtown Los Angeles—literally one end of the country to another. I QUITE SIMPLY DIDN’T KNOW WHERE HOCK WAS. I didn’t even know that he was in the state of Arizona, much less the city of Phoenix.
Now, I have attempted to call the police once before over a sex crime: I tried to report Hot Mami for producing and webcasting live pay-per-view sex shows in the presence of her 9-year-old son. All I knew was that she was in New Jersey, but New Jersey police told me that without an address to investigate there was nothing they could do.]
So back to Hock. Without an address the police will not investigate. Read the search warrant: It was not any witnesses’ phonecalls that prompted the police investiagtion, it was the victim’s decision to file a police report containing essential details (victim’s name, assailant’s name, time and place of the crime). I have had these sorts of discussions with both Stickam’s counsel and FOX producers, immediately going to police with purely visual evidence of a sex crime isn’t as easy as you seem to believe. And even if the address of a crime is known, unless the video clearly depicts a minor or infant being raped, the victim must file a police report. Had Hock’s victim decided not to file a police report, the police would not have acted on any tips from sources other than the victim.]
Efagz is not mentioned in the police reports because the efagz members who witnessed the incident and were so disgusted by it that they went straight to the police were not acting on behalf of the efagz community. In fact Brodi is mentioned by name in the arrest warrant as the primary witness, she just never mentioned efagz because it doesn’t fucking matter. She didn’t report a crime to get hits to a website, she reported it because she wanted justice to be served.
[Does Brodi live in Lafayette, Louisiana? If so, she apparently does care about hits to a website—at least in comparison to the hits my own site gets.
Months worth of comments suspiciously critical of Amor and me, all by a single IP that backtraces (lol) to an ISP in Lafayette, Louisiana. Hmm. “She didn’t report a crime to get hits to a website, she reported it because she wanted justice to be served.” I’m either too jaded or too experienced to believe that. Brodi sure seems to be promoting Efagz on my website, peppered with an animus towards Amor whom I’m sure Brodi’s never even met.]
I am glad that you recorded the incident. Having your tape as evidence will make it very difficult for Hock’s lawyers to argue him out of this one. But this case isn’t about you, and it’s not about efagz; it is about John Hock and the girl that he sexually assaulted. I wish you would step off of your high horse enough to see that.
[I never wrote “the case is about me.” Jessica wrote that in the original Efagz post. However I have had several phone conversations with the arresting officer and the prosecutor. They have both repeatedly thanked me for how helpful I have been and for how much evidence I provided. Apparently only I had the foresight or ability to record and document what Hock did to his victim in Arizona. I’m certainly more familiar with the details of the assault than Jessica, whose inexplicably personal rage towards me evidently distracted her into making several factual mistakes.]
[signed, Anonymous. How courageous of you. Maybe one day when you want to be taken seriously, you’ll have the conviction to sign your name. Here’s how it’s done.]
*To return to the “dumb slut” point: Your defense against this is usually “that was a MyDrama post, that wasn’t me” but I am not referring to the MyDrama post entitled “The Face of a (SLUTTY) Victim!,” I am referring to your original post which you have since edited. Unfortunately for you, the arrest warrant contains the original text, complete with the statements “It’s hard to tell one dumb blonde slut from another” and “But technically, you’re not supposed to engage in sexual contact with someone who is unable to consent, even if she’s a dumb slut who has spread her legs for her assailant many times prior to this assault.”
[Yes, I edited the original post. In January 2010—almost a year after Hock’s February 2009 assault—I bought out Anthony’s interest in Elite Imaging Concepts, LLC and made sweeping changes to StickyDrama. (This purchase was effected by means of a notarized Membership Interest Agreement, meaning I’m not pulling this story out my ass.) Among these changes was my decision to remove content that, while not unlawful, might be deemed inappropriate for certain advertisers and corporate sponsors and promoters. StickyDrama was Anthony’s creation, and his original impetus remains with the site to this day. But even the original flippant post described what had happened to Hock’s victim as unlawful. Obviously rape is wrong. It’s also wrong to rape a 50-year-old prostitute who’s fucked thousands of clients. Rape is wrong, period, against a nun and against a slut.
The most common defense in court is to malign the character of the victim. We saw this happen in the Kobe Bryant case. The defense didn’t call her a “slut,” but they would suggest she was promiscuous and was only alleging rape for attention or money. My post anticipates that strategy by acknowledging the victim’s sexual history AND asserting that it is completely irrelevant to the fact that a crime occurred that night.
Furthermore, consider this: If Hock is convicted, a door will open for the victim. A door to millions of dollars. A door to a CIVIL lawsuit (as opposed to Hock’s criminal trial) filed by the victim against AVC (the company that owns the Stickam service). Stickam would have the public believe that Hock was just some random rogue user of whose proclivities the company was ignorant. Now, everyone on Stickam back in 2007-2008 knows that nothing could be further from the truth. But only I have direct evidence—concrete evidence that I have not given to the State of Arizona as it does not directly bear on Hock’s guilt—that AVC was indeed aware of Hock’s proclivities and instructed its employees not to ban him for Terms of Service violations in light of the many new user registrations he brought the fledgling network from his gigantic Myspace account. Hock’s victim deserves compensation for what happened to her, and Stickam deserves to pay for its foolish support of a controversial entertainer like Hock.
I haven’t asked either party, but attacking my character is probably the last thing the prosecution wants. The fact that Hock’s attorney spent pages attempting to discredit me should be a clue right there: Attacking my character has the effect of undermining the evidence I provided. And only I have provided the State with concrete evidence. If to you this case really is about “a girl who was RAPED,” as Jessica wrote, and if you want to HELP that girl in her legal hurdles instead of HINDER her, stop attacking me. Because like it or not, I am a crucial figure in the victim’s case.]
Earlier this year Abyss2hope, a Google blog “centered on date rape” and operated by Marcelle Chester, published an article about John Hock’s widely-reported 2009 broadcast in which he sexually assaulted his passed-out drunk girlfriend at her home in Phoenix, AZ. StickyDrama eventually learned of the post, and has decided to respond openly to several accusations, misunderstandings and outright lies in Abyss2hope’s article, of which the main source seems to be feminist blogger Fugitvus. The article is split into two parts; but the second part does not address StickyDrama’s involvement in the case, and so this response concerns only the first.
Let’s begin with the obvious: If not for my publicly posting images of the assault, there would have been no arrest. Period. The victim would have no idea what happened to her. The media would not have cared. The police would have no evidence–in fact, the Phoenix police have repeatedly thanked me over the phone for my cooperation and for basically handing this well-documented case to them. Publicly calling attention to the assault was the only way action was going to be taken. At the time of the assault, and for months afterwards, I had no idea exactly where Hock was and which state’s police I could have called. Publicly posting my evidence sparked a huge online outrage, and the outraged public’s efforts to contact the police and inform the victim of what had happened to her is what led to her assailant’s arrest. I know from my own experience reporting sex crimes that one complaint is often not taken seriously by the police, particularly if the victim does not personally report it.
Rape is horrible. Now, this particular sex assault involving Hock is controversial. It’s horrible too. But it is controversial because of the unprecedented nature of the crime: broadcast live for an audience of hundreds or thousands. The controversy is why the story has been reported around the world, including on Abyss2hope. The controversy prompted discussion about what is rape, the right to privacy, internet safety and so much more. I stand by my statement that the controversy will shock teens into being more careful with whom they associate from the internet. It is true that I reported this rape and often refer to it in a flippant or humorous tone—the same tone in which I report everything. What Harriet and others don’t understand is the context of that tone. StickyDrama is truthful, but satirical. Its tone comes from years–years!–of watching vile internet filth like Hock commit crime after crime after crime, and being able to get away with it despite terrabytes of video evidence documenting every unlawful act. I’ve called the police. I’ve called the FBI. Once I even started an epistolary campaign with the FCC (case number CIMS00000732137). No action was taken. I’m still frustrated that none of the news reports mention Hock’s 2007 sex assault in Paris, California:
I told all the reporters about that incident and provided them a link to the post, but you won’t find a word of it in any of the hundreds of news articles about this case.
I have been accused of shaming girls. Never once did I say Hock’s broadcast assault was the victim’s fault. But I think it’s fair to say she was not as cautious as she should have been. Say I leave my car unlocked with the keys in the ignition and return to find it stolen, it’s not “my fault” that I was victimized—but it would have been smarter to lock the car. I might not like to hear that, but it’s true. And my lesson will not only make me more cautious in the future, but hopefully serve as a lesson to everyone else who doesn’t want their car stolen. And significantly, the fact that my unwise decision to leave my car unlocked with keys in the ignition made the thief’s job easy doesn’t mitigate his crime; the theft is just as illegal as if he had broken a window and hot-wired my car.
Stickam.com–the live streaming social networking site where Hock’s assault was originally broadcast–used to be a voyeur’s paradise. Adults—along with teens well under 18 years of age—would constantly get naked, masturbate, do drugs, have sex with household pets, set themselves on fire and god knows whatever else. Stickam bans such users, but the bans are easily circumvented by re-registering with a new email address. Only when my site emerged, and the prospect of one’s online actions being permanently, publicly displayed, did Stickam users tone down their behavior. For all the “womyn” decrying me as a villain, there are 10 times as many “cappers” and “sex-tortionists” who complain that I have made it very difficult for them to trick others into getting naked on camera.
In early 2010 I posted a censored version of the Hock sex assault video, blurring the victim’s face and privates although neither is required by law.
I did not post the video in order to “indulge male fantasies of rape” … indeed, even the uncensored portion does not contain much sexually graphic content. I posted the video in order to provoke discussion and, hopefully, condemnation of the Maricopa County Superior Court’s recent ruling that the video did not depict ANY sexual activity.
Rape advocates everywhere—particularly Harriet, who wrote of this case “that it’s been verified as rape”—should be outraged by the Court’s decision, not my reporting of the crime. Criticizing me is killing the messenger—albeit a vulgar and insolent messenger. Saying the fucking truth isn’t any less valid than politely saying the truth.
Furthermore, the idea that I’m indulging in some heterosexual rape fantasy is idiocy. Reading the comments on Abyss2hope and Fugitivus, I can see several “womyn” are too busy taking on the big evil straight male establishment to bother with facts. For example, commenter Jennifer Drew wrote “Stone himself stated he is ‘giving what male viewers want.'” Where the hell did I ever say that? Nowhere, that’s where. She made up that statement to suit her argument. Another Abyss2hope commenter Erica wrote, “the woman in this video was not drunk, and was sleeping in the supposedly “safe” arms of her boyfriend.” In fact, the victim did tell investigators she had passed out from drinking alcohol at party she herself hosted. Read the warrant! Another completely false assumption is that the video of the assault was posted on my site immediately after the assault, and then removed once I feared it might be unlawful to have posted it. That’s flat-out wrong and I have no idea where that rumor started. The police executed a warrant on my web host and concluded that the video was not on my server; and in point of fact the video had never been on my server until AFTER the Court’s ruling.
Lastly, the idea that I profit or directly benefit from this rape is laughable. Just laughable. The money I make from StickyDrama pays for its server and little else. I concede the controversy has brought heavy media attention and traffic to my site, but I don’t have any “rape dollars” in my wallet because of this crime.
Running a tabloid site like mine, I can understand the urge to comment on current events reported in the traditional news media. But it’s impossible to speak with any significant knowledge about my site and this particular crime, based off a few blurbs written by mainstream reporters who do not fully understand the seedy online world in which today’s teenagers are so absorbed. Most reporters and so-called experts cited in news reports aren’t very knowledgeable of social networking sites nor live streaming video, or even of WordPress blogs. Such technologies are the everyday playground of the young, but most middle-aged adults regard it all as modern digital Voodoo. For example, some people assume that Hock himself wrote all posts about him, because his name appears in the title! Ignorance of the facts of this case and of the technology through which the crime was committed and reported is responsible for 90% of the criticisms against my site and my actions.
Perhaps when Hock’s actual trial begins this August and the case is again explored by the media, more womyn will have taken the time to investigate this story more thoroughly before opening their damn moyth.
Popular Myspace entertainer Gage Arthur appears to have absconded, a violation of the terms of his probation pertaining to his arrest for kidnapping a minor.
Back in September 2009, a MyDrama author enquired why GageArthur might have been going to prison.
After Hock, she began dating Gage in Austin, Texas.
Everything was hunky-stat-rape-dory, until the police pulled over Gage and Madi for a routine traffic check. It turns out that Madi’s mother had reported her as missing: Gage was arrested and charged with kidnapping a minor. He did some time in a Texas jail, then was released into the custody of his family in Mississippi. From there, he received permission to relocate to Los Angeles, provided he pay his probation fines and keep contact with his probation officer.
With his mother paying for his fines, Gage’s only responsibility was to call his probation officer once a month. But even that proved too heavy a burden for Gage, who apparently ceased all attempts to comply with the terms of his probation sometime in 2009. During his time in Los Angeles, he is known to have had intimate relationships with at least one minor, an act unlawful intercourse in California and probably a violation of the terms of his Texas probation as well.
On his now-deleted Twitter account,@GageArthur, he tweeted that was moving to Arizona. His last known address is @Ayeraerae’s apartment at Westside Condominiums in Winnetka, a crappy part of the Valley (and definitely not the Westside).
Since Gage did receive permission to relocate to Los Angeles, his probation status is known only to the LA Sheriff. Citing pesky California privacy laws, the Sheriff declined to address Gage’s status to StickyDrama. Nevertheless, online chatter from various sources indicates that he is indeed a fugitive.
Does anyone know this girls full name?.
used to go by __x__brittney on stickam
supposedly is the reason for the demise of his relationship between ericka back in December of 08′. when they had “reconciled”.
So I was on YouTube today, and in my “Recommended For You” box, there was a video of some band called Hey Monday. I clicked it out of boredom to just see what it was. Just some stupid “Hey Monday funny moments” video. Whatever.
But there was one guy in the video that striked a shocking resemblance to everyone’s favorite Stickam Rapist. I googled the band, found out who the guy was, saw some pictures of him and almost thought it was John himself.
The look-a-like’s name is Michael Jersey Moriarty. Here’s my shitty side-by-side comparison of the two:
A bit more of a clear shot of him:
Fail post, more than likely. I just found it really creepy and odd that this guy looks almost exactly like John.
In reaction to recent tweets, txts and IMs that we have received in which individuals claim to have witnessed Stickam rapist @JohnathonHock roaming free on the streets of Phoenix, StickyDrama placed an inquiry at the Phoenix Police Department’s Adult Sex Crime Unit. Below is our exchange:
So there, all you stupid underage scene whores who can’t wait for him to get out of jail and rape you too, you’ll just have to fucking wait longer. He’s not going anywhere anytime soon. <3
Disclaimer:Note Not Bashing.
A year and half later you wonder what ever happened to hocks main interest (Ericka Marie).
You know the one that hock threaten to beat up brookie because she was spreading wide fire blah blah.
anyways last i heard he gave her clap/herps causing her to delete/void out everything friends etc.
another is that he tarnished her in many ways after (obsession mainly) that she was so grieve stricken because of his incarceration.
anyways i always thought she was a sweet girl driven girl.
but always the cliche. poor taste in guys.
anyways just curious.
