Chief Bridges speaks to Ron Stallworth, who wants to undercover cop:

Chief Bridges: Carmichael is a former high-muckety-muck with the Black Panthers. And as far as I'm concerned, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover was dead right when he said the Black Panthers are the greatest internal threat to the security of these United States.

What's the meaning of "with"?

    He was one of the Black Panthers and had a lot of authority among them.

    Wiki says he was "Honorary Prime Minister" of the Black Panther Party, which I take to be a title that shows he was held in high regard but didn't have a formal position.
