American citizen's rights on police searching

We all know that Americans were born with many rights and protections, the Electronic Freedom Foundation has posted guidelines for protecting American citizen's computer and mobile phone from illegal police searches. The guidelines are in easy to understand language Q and A style. I am sure Don would have studied those guidelines and memorised them well.

Q: Can the police enter my home to search my computer or portable device, like a laptop or cell phone?
A: No, in most instances, unless they have a warrant. But there are two major exceptions: (1) you consent to the search; or (2) the police have probable cause to believe there is incriminating evidence on the computer that is under immediate threat of destruction.

Lucky for Don, people of other nations are not this well protected. For example, here in Australia, Australian do not have rights such as freedom of speech protected.
