O.J. Simpson is by all accounts acting as a normal member of society and living a normal life in Las Vegas. Unfortunately for him, that does not mean that he will be treated as a normal citizen.

Simpson has garnered a lot of attention around the Las Vegas valley since his release in late-September. Pictures of Simpson since his release can be found circulating social media. In fact, people have made "Juice selfies" popular on social media.

The latest Simpson selfies have some looking past the good-natured fun of posing with the infamous O.J. and at the repercussions – or lack thereof – Simpson is facing from his prior convictions.

On Nov. 4, Simpson posed for photos with several people at the Red Rock hotel-casino, which is a Station Casinos property. The problem – Simpson committed the crimes that sent him to prison at a Station Casinos property.

Simpson served a 9-year sentence for kidnapping, armed robbery, and assault with a deadly weapon for attempting to steal pieces of his own sports memorabilia back at gunpoint.

In 2008, Simpson traveled to the Palace Station Hotel & Casino to get family heirlooms and personal memorabilia from a collector.

"I wasn't there to hurt anybody," Simpson said. "I just wanted my personal things, and I realize now that was stupid of me. I am sorry."

In 2013, Simpson said he regretted the Las Vegas kidnapping and robbery.  

"I just wish I had never gone to that room. I wish I had just said, 'Keep it,' and not worry about it," he said. "All I can do about it since I've been here is be as respectful and as straightforward as I could be."

Simpson obviously feels differently about having a leisurely stroll through a Station Casinos property now, but aside from his feelings, social media wants to know why Station Casinos haven't banned Simpson from their properties.

We've reached out to Station Casinos and they are gathering more information on the matter.
