It took all of two seconds for me to lose any enthusiasm for the “Expendables 3,” and an additional three seconds to realize how stupid the additional two-plus more hours of screen time would be. It came from on-screen text to inform the audience the train they’re seeing on screen is an “armored prison transport,” which is made quite clear once star Sylvester Stallone and his compatriots start shooting the heck out of that thing.

Last month, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Human Trafficking Prioritization Act (HR2283). If signed into law, this legislation would elevate the U.S. government’s Trafficking in Persons Office to a State Department Bureau, a change that would help ensure that human trafficking is upheld as a foreign policy priority for the United States. The bill doesn’t add cost or bureaucracy and would be a critical step forward in the fight against human trafficking, a crime which enslaves nearly 30 million people worldwide.
