ResEdit is the complicated way to unlock a file. here's the simple way to do it in 3 steps

1. select the folder
2. go to File:Get info
3. uncheck "Locked"
4. there is no step 4

Have you tried holding down option while emptying the trash that will erase a locked item. It seems to take two empties to get it to erase, so try that.
