Has any citizen had his civil liberties taken away?

Yes, and it happens a few hundred thousand times per day (if not more).

Another View: Every convicted felon has some portion of his citizen 'rights' withheld as a result of the seriousness of their offense. Some states, when petitioned, MAY return a limited amount of 'rights' but it is by no means universally applied nationwide.
Moral of the story: If you can't do the time - don't do the crime!
