Benjamin Davis was found to be insane when he stabbed two men on the Koko Head trail and threw one of them off the ridge three years ago.
Davis was committed to the state hospital for treatment.
Nicolas Iwamoto, one of his victims, is outraged that he wasn’t allowed any input into whether Davis should be allowed to walk free on campus.
”It would have been nice to tell the victims, but I guess we have no rights to testify," Iwamoto said.
Iwamoto was stabbed 18 times, suffered a broken neck and two punctured lungs.
He is still is unable to work or go to school, and called the judicial system, a joke.
"Why not, since he was crazy when he tried to murder me in the most violent way imaginable, since he is mentally healthy, why not put him behind bars and he can do his time," said Iwamoto.
Then, Iwamoto suggests Davis can take English classes online.
Community college students on hand for freshman orientation were surprised to learn of the growing controversy.
"I am actually pretty alarmed at this. That can actually be risky for all of us," said one student who only wanted to be identified by his first name, Sam.
He suggested Davis be provided a tutor.
