Rock star Tommy Lee was sentenced Wednesday to six months in Los Angeles County Jail for battering his wife, actress Pamela Anderson Lee, and was warned that any violation of his subsequent probation will land him in state prison for three years. Malibu Municipal Judge Lawrence J.

Re that Counterpunch on the movie "Bad Girls" (" 'Bad Girls' Fires Off Bad Message," May 23): Was the violence portrayed in the movie extreme? Hardly, when you compare this flick to that testosterone-packed film, "No Escape," or to the previews of Brandon Lee's last film, "The Crow." It's not that I like violence in film; I don't. It's just that when you've spent your entire life watching women portrayed as prostitutes, victims and the hero's lesser half, it's refreshing to see film heroines who are capable of taking care of themselves.

In the garish, lantern-hung cha-cha palace created within Kowloon's Mongkok Neighborhood Centre, the fearful dancers have ceded the floor to five burly, brawl-hungry British sailors and their comparatively slight Asian adversary, Jason Scott Lee. The young Asian, in the black pegged pants of a Hong Kong sharpie of 1962, begins by disabling the most belligerent Brit, boatswain Nick Brandon, with a swift kick to the groin.

It is always difficult for a son or daughter to follow in a famous parent's footsteps, especially if the parent is in show business--and happens to be the late, legendary Bruce Lee, the ultimate kung fu star. However, judging from the strong impression Brandon Lee makes in his first starring role in the dynamic hard-action film "Rapid Fire" (citywide), he has what it takes.

A spasm of cross-racial gang shootings in and around the San Gabriel Valley city of Monrovia has left a 64-year-old African American man and a 16-year-old Latina dead and prompted a law enforcement crackdown to stem the bloodshed. In all, seven people have been killed or wounded in recent weeks, as suspected black and Latino gang members have traded gunfire. At least two of those killed have been bystanders, authorities said.
