Hey, please help me delete these files in OSX. They just won't go away.

While moving files from one server to another, I noticed that some of the files refuse to be deleted. OSX tells me that the files are locked. When I go into the file info and try to click on the box to unlock the file, nothing happens. There are hundreds and hundreds of files, so I'd like to be able to unlock them all at once and then delete them.
I've seen a few things about terminal and batching and all that out on the interwebs, but I have no experience with that, and I'd prefer to not destroy all the things.
Basically, I can follow instructions (terminal-wise), but none of the instructions involve working from a server. So, how can I do this? Help me destroy some of the things.
