Both Michael and C-note are prison inmates.
Michael just now told C-note that he don't know a man called "the Hitler Youth" but it was a lie.

C-NOTE : I see you up there with the Hitler Youth. You know, I got a good mind to slash you open right now.
MICHAEL : It's not what you think. They've got something I need.
[Of The TV Show Prison Break]
I'd like to know why it is "see," not "saw."
Thank you in advance for your help.

    I'd like to know why it is "see," not "saw."
    Because the character does not speak correct and grammatical English.
    There are many native speakers (especially those with little education -- and that group includes most of those who end up in prison) whose speech contains grammatical errors. The script writers realize that if they want the dialogue between prisoners to sound authentic, then it must contain errors of grammar.
