This information is important to our needs because it all helps us find information needed to answer the questions to finish up our board, it specifically explains what we're looking for. The source of the information comes from the local news, a data base ( SIRS ) and a website about the government. These are pretty accurate because we witnessed the events unfold itself here in Kalihi about the fights and guessing by the number of fights that happen, we can surely give a strong guess that these sources are accurate. The information exists to keep Hawaii and the United States up to date and let us know whats going on in Hawaii and in the U.S.
