Force Delete is a small utility to rest in your dock or toolbar that will delete the currently selected file no matter what, if you have administrator privileges. It is also a great addition to FruitMenu's contextualmenus.
Beacause you obviously can't just lanch it, please read the readme for instructions, precautions, and known issues with this program.
Force Delete a single file or folder: Select a file or folder on your computer and click the icon in your dock or Finder toolbar. A dialog should pop up asking you if you're sure you want to delete the file or folder and giving you the Unix path. Read this message and make sure that it is the file or folder you wish to delete, especially in the column view where file/folder selections are sketchy. If you decide to go through with it a dialog will pop up asking you to enter you administrator password. Type it in and press OK. The file/folder will be deleted. It may take the Finder a moment to realize that it is gone but you didn't receive an error, it is.
No more Terminal for Force Empty Trash (Thanks Tom!)
Smarter selection error behavior (code catches its self rather than your system).
