why can't I empty the locked items from my trash?

I'm not the original poster but thank you to those of you (sdpitbull, limnos and Courcoul) who responded because I had over 19k items in my trash (don't ask!) and couldn't delete because of 'locked items' - the option key worked great!! Thank you!!
Reminds me of when I failed to limit the amount of space taken by Firefox's cache. When it hit several GB in size and had zillions of items, emptying it out took over half an hour to finish!
Thanks! I had the same issue. It was solved.
