Wait until your hatch latch has a hard time securely latching the hatch. Wow nice rhymes.. On my '02 SVT the hatch latch was bad, I had to strong arm slam that sucker every time for 4+ years, and nothing ever got broken. Well it MAY have caused a license plate light to burn out;, but I could't tell that for sure, since the bulb had been in there for 10 years at the time it went bad.

Pull out a gun and shoot the security employee next time you see him.

Closing trunk lid hard

I think some people are generally in the habit of slamming trunk lids hard,
because that's how it used to be.

My 06 Focus ST has a rear trunk spoiler, which recently came loose; which
may have been due to hard trunk lid closing. I had to pay a few hundred
dollars to have the spoiler fixed.

If slamming the piss out of the trunk is messing up your trunk frame you got more problems than someone slamming your trunk. As far as the actual body of the trunk I couldnt see how you could possibly damage it. The worse I could see after non stop slamming would be the latch and maybe the spoiler if your car has one and that 3rd brake light could possibly come loose. Other than that its just rather annoying.
