Question Is there harms of closing the trunk's door violently and stupidly strongly.

Hi all,
Today a security employee shut my ford focus trunk's door extremely strong, I felt that stupidly strong shut while sitting inside it, it was very strong. My question is, what are the effects of shutting the trunk's door violently, and damages that could happen or result from it?, so that I know whether I should get that angry and anxious about such a thing again, or be more comforted that it's harmless.
Car Model: Ford Focus 2009-Sedan.

Thanks in advance.

You're way better than me, you are still bearing that; I couldn't bear it for this as a first time, I felt I wanna kill this worker.
Nevertheless, Is that cracks are the only result you've got, from such a really violent closing?. Has anything got unscrewed, or you've got any part rattling?

Check the latch and the metal loop that it hooks onto to make sure that they are still tight and did not get moved (evident from scratches around the screws).

Well if you slam you car door enough times it can damage the latch and sometimes the enternals like window regulators and such. So I imagin it can screw your latch up and damage the paint.

i have a few rattles here and there but I don't think its related to the hatch. Im sure the closing mechanism has worn more than it should but it is still functioning properly. I started getting out of the car and closing it for them till they got the message......now Im working with them on the doors

Yes you are right about the doors, but Do you've any idea is there anything internal in the trunk's door, or whatever it's named.

If someone did this to my car, I'd slam my foot up their ass... violently.

I checked, they are perfect, nothing in them, checked even springs, probably everything external or apparent to me is good enough. Is there anything internal at the trunk's door that could be affected too. I think nothing is internal except the cables connected to the latch lock.
